    in case of necessity to do /in case of necessity of doing/in case it is necessary to

    Hello everybody!

    1. In case (that) it is necessary to replace the broken item by a new one, please bring it along to the repair shop.
    2. In case of necessity to replace the broken item by a new one, please bring it along to the repair shop.
    3. In case of necessity of replacing the broken item by a new one, please bring it along to the repair shop.



    In my opinion, the three above sentences mean the same. Do you agree with me?

    What is the difference between in case of necessity to replace and in case of necessity of replacing in sentence 2 and 3?

    Thank you.

    Re: in case of necessity to do /in case of necessity of doing/in case it is necessary

    Sentence 1 would be natural if you replaced by with with. The other two are unnatural.

    Re: in case of necessity to do /in case of necessity of doing/in case it is necessary

    Here's a better way to say this: Please bring the broken item with you so we can replace it if necessary.
