Bosch PS31 Drill/Driver repair

I have had this Bosch PS31 compact drill driver for several years. It is one of my favorite tools.
Last weekend, when working on my soffets and facia, I dropped the drill driver and the clutch popped out. It is possible a couple of the small cylindrical bearings also fell out, I found one of them but I suspect there might be a couple more.

Is this worth trying to fix? A replacement gearbox is about the same price as the bare tool on EBay. I still haven't quite figured out how the clutch is actually held in the gear box.
I just hate throwing stuff out without giving repairing it a shot.
Take Care all

For a power tool with some years on it I don't like to go past 50% of it's new cost when fixing.

I don't like pitching tools either, and have repaired a number of them over the years, but when the cost of repair parts starts to pile up, and particularly not being certain that I have all of the pieces to start with, it's time to replace it.
