PI100..given the horrendous cost of a gearbox rebuild, you should have the gearbox Oil changed as soon as possible. Make sure it is hot and keep a sample of around 200mls, in a sealed bottle.

Castrol, used to, and I'm sure still do, offer an Oil analysis service, it fully analyses the Oil for contamination etc, and then sends you a comprehensive written report. It was not too expensive, and I used to use it for engine Oil changes on a Volvo F7 I was looking after.

Your gearbox is probably OK if you now have no extra whining, or selection problems but you do need to get rid of metal swarf that'll cause wear and synchro issues down the track...do the Castrol thing.
