    Default clunk under the car when changing gear

    Sometimes when I change from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd there is a slight clunk from under the car somewhere, 3.0 cdti, anyone else had this or know what it could be.

    i had a similar clunk sound.. I found that the bolts from the gearbox mounts had 'disappeared'... I bought new ones from VX for about £2...

    Does it happen when the aircon is on or off? Sounds strange but I had a similar sound but only when the aircon was on. It turned out it was the main refrigeration tube had slipped out of a rubber bracket. Popped it back on and all was fine.
