Re: gears

sounds like you've scared/shocked the box,i've done it to mine,i know others that have done it to theirs,it comes from hammering/quick shifting the gears too hard and much from cold,never come accross one that has rattled,as KungLao has mentioned,check your oil levels..

Re: gears

rattle sounds like a stripped tooth to me, box might be locking due to floaty bit of metal. thats worst case though.

p.s. if its only 1 or two teeth you prob wont notice it much

Yes that would be the release 'thrust' bearing when you push clutch in it goes away then when clutch pedal out you get the noise, take the intercooler off the car look under the black rubber boot where release fork is the slave cyl onto this take the black booth out and look down at thrust bearing see if anything a miss
