Noisy Gearbox on 159 1.9JTDm
Had my 159 1.9 JTDm Sportwagon for nearly 18months now and all has been rosy until this month. Started having intermittent power problems then finally went into limp mode. A new Air Mass Meter and EGR later and she's sweet again.
However the guys at the indy where i go said that the gearbox is pretty noisy. I hadn't really noticed and put it down to a characteristic of the car, but since Ive had here back it's all I can hear now. Basically there's a bit of a metallic sound low down and I also hear it when in 6th cruising when I then put the foot down.
Is it time to say goodbye or take the hit? 6 months out of warranty :-( Guys at the garage said it might go or hang on in there without digging around. Thing is I can't really afford £1k+ of repairs at the moment now that Jnr has come along.
Has anyone else had similar gearbox capers? Had a quick search but couldn't find much but then could be being a search pleb!
Problem shared and all that........
