ooh,an extra gear!!
Join Date: Aug 2011
I am sorry to say it isn't fixed yet,due in part to some previous spanner monkey using a 'windy' gun on one of the bolts,it is virtually immovable.I will probably have to take the air con pump off and get it all on a vice.
I actually cracked a breaker bar,trying to undo it in situ!
Mine also makes the noise in reverse,especially if reversing up a hill or trying to accelerate quickly backwards,does yours?
All of the mounts on mine are tired,including the rear gearbox one and the top one,not helped when the dmf started to fail.
It may be a bit of a long shot,but it might be worth making sure the driveshaft bolts(the six on each inner cv joint) haven't worked slightly loose,though I think that would make a noise all the time
After that. I am out of ideas!
Hope you find the problem and it's an easy fix!
