    confused very noisey gear change

    Ok, next on my snag list is my very noisey gear change.. This is not between any particular gears although i would say i do not get when selecting reverse. It is when changing up gears mainly.. its a right clunking sound, if i have my window down i can hear it and get quite embarrassed. If I move the gear stick out of one gear and in the next very slowly its not as bad and sometimes no sound as i want it to be.. Now my DMF is knackered and will be changed with the clutch next month, but i do not think this would be the cause (have not heard this issue being associated with their failing DMFs). Could it be my gear linkage or gearbox oil, I have no idea how to check my gearbox oil, or do you guys have any other suggestions?

    I dont think you 'do' check your gearbox oil ..its supposed to be lifelong.

    However I recently changed mine following the excellent 'how 2'..was a biatch of a job simply due to a lack of access on my axle stands.

    Read the 'how 2'.

    My gearbox is now silky smooth and my mileage/consumption has increased on longer journeys too!!

    ta, did not think about the 'how to' as it was for an auto box etc.. will give it go next weekend after i have bought some replacement drain plugs etc..

    When i take the car in for its DMF and clutch will they have to drain the gearbox oil then or will they not need to and leave the nice shiney new stuff i will put in?

    I have the same problem in my 150cdti. The noise seems to be coming from the linkage rather than the box itself! Did the oil change do the job?
