    Default Gear change

    Hi

    I got turbo gasket replaced yesterday so was listening to see if it was ok but i normally have music on but what i noticed was when i change gears it makes a faint noise which sounds like ball bearings are moving or something. Its not grindin and gear change is fine. Hear it more when going into 5th like its something is rolling. i hear from the where the gear knob is and not the engine.

    Is this something to worry about? is this standard vauxhall gearbox.

    i had the car pressure washed yesterday as there was alot of oil due to leak

    any advise would be great

    cheers

    just got it checked from garage they said nothing to worry about. said noise is the linkages in the gear knob bit

    only really happens when i change gear into 3rd/4th 5th but 5th is more noticeable! cos i keep the gear pressed with hand but if i let go off gear stick it is ok

    pull up the gaitor and have a look down the gearchange..you'll soon see if anything is wrong....but don't worry , it won't be related to having a turbo gasket changed..

    Hi

    I am just curious about the issue i orginally stated.

    I drove this morning and when i first change into 5th it squeaks but after that i hear the same noise when i change the gear only as above. The noise as stated above comes from the gear stick bit.

    But gear change is smooth no problems there

    just wanted to know what could possibly cause this?

    cheers
