my annoying box/clutch rattle is still there after swapping gearboxes... unlikely 2 boxes in a row have same issue.
put car in R and it rolls yay. put in 1st roll forward, nice its got drive. put it back in N and i hear that friging rattle again!!!! yes. After swappping boxes its unlikely to be the box.
So car in N and foot off clutch, rattle comes from behind engine. near starter from what i hear.
put foot on clutch it disappears. GRRRRR havent test driven yet as i was annoyed.
So it could be clutch rattle (maybe one of the springs came loose on hill climb in dec)? could it bee loose fly?
when box was out clutch looked good, all the splines were on the cover.... or could it be just the throw out bearing.
im at a stage of trying to find a mechanic to help me out.
i was also reading up and apparently lightened flywheels and hd clutchs tend to do this over time.
i just dont want to loose my legs from something crapping its self in there. yeah im being dramatic... but we have all heard stories of exploding clutches and flywhels... thats another reason they make scatter shelids lol.
