Can they be easily replaced?
I lost second gear in my C4 last night and when I removed the pan I found one of the struts laying in the pan.
This cant be good right?

If it were as simple as the strut falling out, it is easy to replace. It could have very well broken the band.

If you are racing and the band is loose the struts will POP out on the 2-3 shift. Properly adjusted bands won't allow the struts to come out without the band breaking - which is a lot less common than folks think.
I would suggest a close inspection and if the band is not broken then keep that band adjusted.
