  • Gearbox prob!!

    Got a whining noise coming from the gearbox area and a clunking on the gearstick in 1st and 5th when blipping the throttle... Going into VX tomorrow!! Went to Dap on friday, 500 mile round trip, and noticed this on the way back....just cruising no wellie...seems strange for it to just happen like that...

    That is not good mate, dont think that will be covered by warranty either !

    my guess is a new box is needed.

          because of stage 3 !

          gearbox has too much torque going through it, was just a thought !

                  Yeah I was so tempted to fit that but this seems to be getting worse so looks like I made the right call!! How do regal manage with their 400bhp astras on the vx gearbox??

                      if you can get car on a 4 poster Ramp pull the drive shafts a bit
                      Play in the bearings on the Diff i would say
                      the truth is out there

                          have a look at the Diff as that could be the problem
                          if you get play on the shafts in the Diff
                          the truth is out there

                              Could be run dry of oil mate and cooked the bearings on the long trip? Just a thought, seat have had the same prblems with there 6 speed on some models with oil starvation issues.

                              If its whining it not going to stop till its repaired.

                              Thats a real bummer mate hope it get sorted out for you.

                              You didnt remove the box paint it orange and put it back in by anychance and not top it up with oil? only joking mate!!!
