clutch/gearbox problems

I have owned my gtv v6 for 2 weeks and it has just started crunching slightly as you go into third also at the top of 1st/2nd there is a "rattling" sound coming from the gear box. Finally while the car is idling and you lift your foot off of the clutch the is a grinding noise coming from the clutch. Lucky i bought it from a dealer and they are taking it back to sort out. I would like to know what is causing the problem and how the problem was covered when i purchased it.
Any help or words of wisdom would be greatly received.

Re: clutch/gearbox problems

im only a newbie here so someone who knows more will be able to help but from reading lots of old posts in the forum synchromesh problems dont seem uncommon an would maybe account for the crunch on gear change.

Re: clutch/gearbox problems

Although this is probably not related, it may provide some help. I have just completed a full service on my car including a full gearbox oil replacement.

My car was suffering from clunky and 'hard' changes in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The new oil seems to have allieved the problems. Also on closer inspection the actual gear linkage that attaches to the box, doesn't look great. It could be that causing problems.
