    Hi guys,

    I've noticed my car has a rattle on a cold start and when its had a good run im 90% sure its the gearbox its like a mechanical rattle

    Any ideas...clutch and gear change feel ok

    :)

    i agree with the last post sounds like your dual mass flywheel is shot had a similar noise on a car in work and it turned out it was the d.m.f and it wasnt cheap but i would get it checked out by a garage

    Yep sounds like the DMF is on the way out.

    Describe the noise when hot, and if it goes quiet when you dip the clutch and engage a gear.

    Does it change if you engage the clutch and first gear?

    Ok, you'll know for sure if this is the case, the only reason I comment is because mine had a new box when it made this noise, and it was noisey.

    So if the noise goes when in gear and engage a biting point its the flywheel?

    Right, cold start this afternoon, rattle as usual, dipped clutch still rattles, clutch down 1 engaged still rattles, find biting point in first...No rattle...

    Any ideas?

    Ok, not the gearbox symptoms I had then, so thats out of the way. Possible the DMF I would suggest.
