Newbie Help!!!

Hi everybody as you can see I'm new to the forum. I'm looking for some help!
I bought a great Fiat Scudo 1.9 non turbo 3 months ago which has been great. Last week as I was driving along and suddenly lost all except for 5th gear. I had it recovered to my local garage and they diagnosed that the selector shaft had seized in the gearbox. I thought it was odd as the gearbox had been replaced by another garage 5k ago and the symptoms seemed to be exactly what you would expect from a snapped cable.
I mentioned this but they were adamant so it was recovered to the other garage to have the gearbox repaired under warranty.....Guess what? I had a call from the garage to say the gearbox is fine and it simply needs a set of cables! They are looking to charge me £668 all in as I now have to cover the cost of recovery and the cables are main dealer at £331 a set.....Has anyone else had a similar experience? I'd appreciate any feedback....

Maybe it is the cable, but on my old 2002 Expert 1.9 the gears disappeared and it was the final linkage to the selector shaft.

The plastic cup bit had disintegrated - not surprising after 15 years.
