I'm Ross, from Netherlands, i have a Alfa 147 JTD 8v with some mods, and the last mod it was the conversion to solid flywheel, and gearbox upgrade to 2.4 JTD came out from Lybra.
The car runs pretty good, much better than before, but i got this issue from the beginning, when i press the clutch pedal the noise just stops, when i release it cames again, when is hot the noise its louder, horrible, and also as you can hear, another sound like tick tick, not regular but occasionaly, and the rattle with the car running is not audible, but the other sound it is, mostly in 1st and 2nd gears at low rpm...
This sound is getting me crazy, and i don't want spend much more on this sector (clutch/ gearbox)...
The guys from the workshop says that it is the input shaft bearing...it really is?
What is better? Put the 6 speed gearbox which is a straight fit, or repair this one?
Hear the sound on the video:
Thanks in advance!
