  • VVOC cant help me how about here?

    I posted a problem on VVOC.co.uk


    My Vec GSI grinds when I go into 3rd gear at speed. I can stop it if I leave the clutch down for longer but that isnt any good if I want to get a shift on :-)

    Any idea id this is an expensive problem? Gearbox or Linkage broke?

    I havent got any idea whatsoever.

    I think its the gear bearings.... but I am female and haven't really got a clue

      If the noise stops when you press the clutch it may be a thrust bearing,cheap part but fitting£££££
      If not could be the gearbox ouch!

        thats not what I wanted to hear. :-(

        Well it took less than 10 minutes for a reply on here.


        I had my post on VVOC for about2 days now with no post.





        I just remembered he had a new clutch fitted and he said it will need a follow up check??? Sound about right?

              Could be better news then,if you are not getting the grind when you are in gear it may well be the thrust race bearing.
              I hope you can get it sorted without too much money being spent
