    A rattle near the gearbox? Sounds like our dear old friend, the DMF. Does the noise change when moving the clutch pedal?

    Yes some do. IIRC not all had a dmf, could be wrong though.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    BTW first mention of one failing on anything other than a diesel I think ive seen here. Im sure I read in TV mag that you can replace the one on the 3.2 with a solid one from an Astra.
