Double-declutch, change the synchro unit, or replace gearbox. They never get better I'm afraid.

Simples - take it back to the repairer!
Question - was the clutch replaced as well, slave cylinder?

Sorry guys I did mean oil, it’s only done 29000 miles , my concerns is what’s caused it after so few miles , and will it happen again once I have had it fixed

Unfortunately gearbox problems aren't particularly unusual on the earlier X250 Fiats, remember the hoo-ha about reverse gear? Do you know if yours had the modification?

A good gearbox specialist should be able to sort it out for you and probably do the mod as well if needed. You SHOULD be okay after that but who knows? Get a guarantee on the work.

It doesn’t suffer from the dreaded reverse judder at all , that’s perfect it’s just the 4th synchro I suspect , I’m not overly concerned on
The repair bill , but more concerned I spend a shed load of money and it is short lived and needs doing again
