    Default gear box noise

    went to look at a vectra 1.9cdti today.120bhp version.Now the car has done 100k and seemed to drive fine but when sitting a idle there is a like clicking noise coming from the gearbox area.
    the guy said it has done that since he bought the car at 70k but seems not right to me.

    here the car http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/2999133.htm
    reason am thinking of buying it is.last week a bought a 2008 plate sri 1.9cdti xp in black twin exhaust etc.Car has already got a full vxr leather interior.
    So plan was to take the brakes,exhausts,front bumper,lights and other wee bits of this .Put them on the sri and bits off that back on this.
    sell the interior to get back some cash.Put a standard interior back in.Sell on cheaper or keep it for the girlfriend.

    I agree it's not worth 4.5k, i paid 4k for my xp'd elite 2 years ago... however for 3.5k it may be worth it

    A see the car as abit of a donar car for my new one.Ad gain about £1200 worth of parts on mine before even selling the interior.
    IF it is the clutch then ad just be paying for a kit and getting the oldman up here to do it mate.lol
    He did the gearbox and clutch on my first vectra c.We did it in my grandas front garden.lol.He said it was one of the worst cars hes ever worked on.lol
