Be aware, that if is left for to long before being repaired, the Viscous coupling can cause the bearings to chew out the rear alloy gearbox housing. Then you will need one of them as well.
The couplings expand and put sideways force on the bearings, causing them to fail.
The worst I have seen is where it has got to the stage of chewing a couple of mm of the side of 4th gear, due to splitting the bearing next to it.
Fix it before it gets bad.
You could buy the couplings from the states, were selling for about $650us, last year. have not looked recently.
