Alfa 156 Gearbox Problem

Hello everyone! I'm a newcomer to the site and I'm looking for advice on a problem I have with my Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 JTS Veloce Sportwagon, well at least the latest one! I've had a string of them since purchasing the car new just over 2 years ago.

I recently heard a knocking noise when the car is idling. A mechanic friend of mine had a look last night and he says that it's a gearbox problem. The knocking does stop when you push in the clutch but he is still convinced that it is not a clutch problem but a fault with the gearbox.

The car has only done 16,000 miles! anyone had a similar experience? PS: What's the score with the 3rd year warranty on the Alfa, will I still be covered?? think it's something to do with servicing for 1st 2 years at an Alfa dealer. Can anyone help PLEASE!

Dan, so long as you car has been serviced properly (not necessarily at a dealer) it should eb covered under warantee.
