Re: OK So what noises SHOULD a selespeed make?

the achilles heel of the selespeed system (and for every sequential gearbox, i.e. BMW, Porsche etc !) is the release bearing !!! as David (and myself) stated ,when the engine runs the clutch release bearing is under pressure (open clutch). If the bearing starts its music (like mine did at 112k) you MUST put in a new clutch set.. (I did run it for a couple of weeks which resulted in a very humiliating dead in a traffic jam, worsening the reputation of Selespeed even further (and destroyed the good humor of my spouse and myself for days !!!.))
