    Default idle gear noise? help !!!!

    Dear All

    I have a terrible mechanical rattle comming from my gearbox/ clutch area. the noise is only apparant when the clutch pedal is between top and bottom stroke.

    took it to vx who replaced the thrust bearing under warranty (two days later) ! told me all is good? not the case! took it back 24hrs later, but they refuse to carry out any further works until the area technical man pays them a visit! 2 - 3 weeks time? until then i have the car back but the noise is getting worse. i can travel about 1500 miles a week and worried it will go bang!

    the service manager believes its the idler gear but refuses to carry out works until vx technical man looks at it!!!!
    he believes it could be a oil grade problem?

    been onto vx customer service but an awaiting the return call?

    any ideas or suggestions anyone????????

    Mine was recently making a similar noise i think by your description my dealer replaced the clutch and the flywheel seems to have sorted it out.

    You'd think they'd inspect the flywheel when they had the gearbox down thou??? or is that too much??

    i got a call from vx yesterday, they are booking my car in for a replacement flywheel, as previously said, why was this not checked when the gearbox was out?

    I have never used pomphreys vx dealer before customer service and booking in is fine, its a real shame they dont check out all possibilities when the gear box was out!

    And now the steering feels stiff when i turn left? could this be due to the gearbox removal?
