I noticed today that my gearbox is getting noiser.
It seems to be a clicking noise in 1st and 2nd gear it could be doing it in all the gears but i cant hear it for the road noise.I,ve tried going round in circles to see if it,s the cv joints but it seems no different.
The gear stick also moves in time with the clicking but only on the overrun.
Any ideas anyone.
Regards

Cheers Marlon
It sounds like the chipped tooth as jimmybob said.
My next question is obviosly the diff is damaged so how long will the diff(if thats what the problem is)last and will it do any other damage.
Can the diff be replaced or is it a new gearbox(over to you jimmybob)
If it,s a new gear box where would i get one and what will the price be roughly
Thanks in advance

The allen bolts that hold the drive shaft on were loose.This cured the gear stick moving but hasn,t cured the noise.
I think i asked this before Do any of these additives for gear boxes-diffs work.
Cheers

it would be worth you trying some first you never know it might work.!!
a rebuild is going to be a lot cheaper than a new one but only up to point ,it all depends what you find when you take it to bits.

Here,s the latest someone correct me if i,m wrong .If the front wheels are off the ground and you turn one wheel does the other one turn the same way,stay still or turn the other way.Mine turns the other way very slowly.

Shug, that's what it should do. With a normal diff the other wheel will turn in the opposite direction. With a limited-slip diff it will usually turn the same way.

Shug, if you find the box is knackered, I still have one for sale (assuming a 2 litre from a 16v is the same).....

Sorry to be a vulture, I hope that you actually sort yours.

looking at the C.D it seems that they were changed for the 16v...the clutch might also be different.

That,s the car booked into a specialist called cp motors in Dundee on monday.Hopefully the damage won,t cost too much to sort or it might not be worthwhile fixing it.
Keeping my fingers crossed

Visited the specialist today,well done jimmbob,he confirmed it,s a broken tooth in the diff or the main shaft.
He gave me a few no.s to phone,the first was in glasgow,this guy is a lawyer who repairs and restores alfa,s for a hobby.£100 for the box needless to say i didn,t phone anyone else.
Also found a 155 in a scrapyard near my home it,s a 1.8 widebody but the engine and gearbox were gone(i,m told that the 16 valve,145 2.0 fiat tempra 2.0 and lancia dedra 2.0 boxes all fit it,s just the final ratios that are different).
The passenger door and grill is missing,it,s been smashed up the rear so any one looking for a few bits be quick cause it,s going to the crushers in 2 weeks.

Speedy,
He hasn't got one. Last 155 he broke was about 6 months ago and he sold everything really quickly.
If he gets another one in I'll put a post up although he dosen't break as many cars as he used to (his wife won't let him :eek: )

Shug might be able to get a price on the one in Leven though...

Over to Shug wink
