UPVC espagnolette gearbox failure



Window not closing properly and handle just turns around.Took the espagnolette lock and handle off and discovered broken metal inside the gearbox.The window is about 17 years old and side hung.Name on the espagnolette is profile 22 and the model number is GR100.Its 905mm long and i was wondering if changing the gerabox would be easier rather than the whole thing as its a strange lenth.Can they be cut to size or would it be easier to get a replacement gearbox and can anyone suggest /recommend a supplier? thanks

Cabot, any chance of some pictures of it out of the frame?

1 pic of the whole mech
1 of the gearbox
1 of the mushrooms/rollers/cams
1 pic looking down the length ie like a cross section view

And the width of the metal strip, might be 16mm?

And i'll gladly search around for you ;)
