I've a problem with my F13 Gearbox anyone had this?
here's the prolblem:
I fitted a replacement box as mine was worn on synchro's, fitted box when i let the clutch out, New clutch and release bearing i might add, there is a dry bearing/rough bearing noise as soon as i put clutch down it goes,With new oil too.
So i assumed the main input shaft bearing (flywheel end) is worn out as noise is there in neutral and louder in 1st then 2nd but qiueter in 3rd and less in 4th and so on, this being so as the gears go away from flywheel i.e 5th furthest away.
I bought a new bearing and today took out clutch, gear clusters etc and fitted new bearing, after allmost 8 hours arssing about doing job damn noise still there!!!!!!
As the noise is apparent when clutch is released in neutral, i'm guessing it must now be the bearing at the other end of the main input shaft?
Is this easier than all of todays frantic's?
Any advice welcome, except get a new gearbox!!LOL!!
