Where can i buy parts for my gearbox - synchro

I have a problem with 5th gear on my 95 impreza import, I spoke to someone and they said it may be the synchronizer hub. He also said he wouldn't take the car on because its to hard to get the parts. There is no one else in my area does gearbox's.
So I'm just asking the question but do you need to pull the engine out to be able to get at the box or can you undo it from underneath leaving the engine in place?

Also does anyone know where to get parts :- Synco Hub, Clutch etc

Thanks

if you have ramps box will drop out the bottom of the car. as far as hard to get parts thats a fob off, parts arn't hard to come by, sounds like hes saying he can't do it but doesn't want to admit it.

alot of place will to a rebuilt box for around 650 ish, normal exchange for your old one, add a clutch on to it and your up around 1000+, so its worth traveling, scoobyclinic in chesterfield built my box for me, i know a chap who travels from bristol when he wants work done, but theres some other specialist who im sure are closer, but afraid don't know wales that well.

get the car up high on 4 axle stands (a 2 poster lift is best reallyif you knew someone with one), then you'll need the trolly jack to slide and lower the box out, if you dont have a lift its the easyest way, ive done it 5 times now, i rebuilt my box with a uprated gearset. check out my profile pick.
keep in touch
