Hi guys, i am just wondering if there are any common gearbox issues with the 5 speed box that comes on the agu engine.

sorry i dont have any codes.

it sounds like something is rubbing / nocking on the end casing? goes away when you dip the clutch

If it's silent when the clutch is depressed but noisy off the clutch such as sitting at idle in neutral it's usually the clutch thrust bearing ... it gets replaced when fitting a new clutch so gearbox out Job ... however mine on my old car was noisy for 2 years and lasted until clutch needed replacing

thanks for the reply cr41g, it doesnt sound like the thrust bearing. i have had cars with that issue before. it sounds like something is tapping the end casing slightly. was just wondering if there are any common problems with 5th gear on these boxes

Could be a bearing in the gearbox that's a bit sloppy... Also, if you're running a single mass flywheel, this will accentuate any gearbox slop and make it sound quite knocky. Especially when cold!
