The Problem

Heard some odd noises, and then a smell like gas (gearbox oil on exhaust) after investigation at Vauxhall(video attached, forward passed brakes and tyres) advised that they think something has hit the gearbox, looks to me like a defect in the casing. They want £5,000 to repair. Anyone had a similar problem?
