Reply to "Always check drained oil from your transmission!"

I've seen small bits of metal like that snap-ring end get tangled up in one of the  synchronizer assemblies and lock up the shifting. That's if it avoids getting caught in the ring gear mesh and cracks the case. Pull the trans, take the bottom off and inspect it- or find someone who can. Crossing your fingers and hoping may not save your ZF. And they're not making any more.....
