    confused rattling noise from gearbox

    hi there i have a rattle coming from my vectra 2.2 dti gearbox but as soon as i push the clutch down it stops also it only makes a noise in 1st and 2nd gear when driving, when the car is sat running with the clutch out and i move the gearstick back to 4th it stops, i'v only had the car 2 months and looking at its history its had a new clutch and flywheel fitted about 2 year ago, can anyone shed some light on this?

    cheers daz

    If the noise goes away when you press the clutch then that's usually a sign that the release bearing is faulty.

    cheers for the reply. also forgot to say when its sat running rattling away when i wiggle the gearstick fast from 3rd to 4th with the clutch out it sounds as if i'm interrupting the rattle thats there, i'm hoping it is just the release bearing and not the box

    Could be something as simple as a loose bracket, but to me it sounds like a gearbox fault.
