    hi
    i have replaced the gerabox in my 1998 quattro and first gear is noisey could this have anything to do with incorrect linkage alignment, i personally do not think so but the guy i brought it off says it was fine for him?

    is it like a rasping / fast ticking noise when you take up drive in first then disapears when you press the clutch and select second if so you have a chipped tooth on first gear was it a recon box or second hand there is plenty of info on the net about this problem

    it was a second hand box and yes it's like a rasping sound, the pitch gets higher as you speed up. i now have two busted gearbox's could i replace first gear (lay shaft)?
