Default Linkage Replacement

My 1.1's gear linkage has just broken (assume that's what it is anyway - can't select any gear, gearstick feels disconnected).

I've seen posts saying you can access the linkage by taking the air box off but a youtube video saying to jack the car up.

Does it actually need to be jacked up to replace the linkage rods? The car is 30 miles from home and I'll need to get back to it with public transport followed by a bit of a walk so can only really take basic tools to it.

If jacking up is needed will have to get it recovered.
