I just saw on ebay usa a gearbox which look similar to mine.
This one was for a +2. Is it the same for the baby elan?
It ain ?t cheap. But it could allow a fast swap and avoid for my car to lay around for 2 or three weeks on the parking lot in front of some french garage....

That looks to be a very expensive option.

Here's something a little closer to home, no affiliation

A review here from a satisfied customer, along with some prices ( not sure if current)

Or call Paul Matty, he probably has a spare gearbox or 2 lying about.
Kindest regards

I see the US vendor says it fits a Europa. I'd love to know how!
