Can anyone tell me what gearbox is used with the above engine? I have a P reg mk3 astra 1.7 low blow diesel. When the clutch is not depressed, there is what sounds like a really harsh tappety sound, however when the clutch is depressed this disappears. I am presuming this is the clutch release bearing? Ii this this the engine with the pot type flywheel or can I replace the clutch and bearing without removing the gearbox?
Also, if it is the bearing which has gone, can I salvage the bearing from my old cavalier f18 box?
