G50 gearbox, ever had any problems???

Had complete gearbox failure on a C4 at approx. 30,000 miles and 8 years of ownership (have the car from new and was/is a daily driver).

Started by occasional random difficulties selecting low gear. Didn’t pay much attention, and a couple of weeks later the complete gearbox seized, leaving me stranded in the middle of central London. By “seized” I mean the gearshift remained in neutral and simply couldn’t be moved to any gear. Was advised not to bother with repair, but simply replace it with a low mileage used box. Which is what I did.

Looks like i have to take the gearbox from my c4 in the next weeks,,,, There's is a rattling sound in first gear and only there,,,, Can hear inside and from the outside,,, and it's a little bit loud,,,, Changed the oil and there was no bits of metal or something like that in the oil,,,,

Has anyone had a problem with first gear???
