Oh no my gearbox!?!
 
Hi guys wonder if you can shed some advice on this...

Whilst taking my car to get its m.o.t today,i was changing down through the cogs then suddenly 3rd gear made an horrible rattling noise http://bbs.scoobynet.co.uk/images/smilies/cry2.gif but the other gears are ok (for now!). Although the car did pass its m.o.t http://bbs.scoobynet.co.uk/images/smilies/smile.gif so on my way home i thought i'll miss 3rd and go into 4th but it screams back at me so i can only go to 5th then drop down to 4th and no screaming!

So is the box telling me its re-build time if so how much will this cost http://bbs.scoobynet.co.uk/images/smilies/cry2.gif

its an MY94 STI saloon and i guess its very different to an wrx box.

If it is re-build time who knows of a good gearbox rebuilder in the middlesbrough area!

Hope you guys can help

prob with mine is just 5th gear syncro/selectors and prob retaining nut hopefully-cheaper to find a 2nd hand box mate than rebuild tho that said i may decide to get mine rebuilt coz cars only done 42k an the rest of the box is fine-trouble with 2nd hand is not knowing what theyve done,only other option i`d consider is to try and source a sti version 6 box coz apparently theyre the strongest for the classic shape.

Thanks for the replys but as we dont know about the history of a 2nd box - not sure how long there will last,might end up with 2 u/s boxes :lol: !!!

Guna see a mechanic tomorrow and see what he thinks but i think i'll bite the bullet and have it re-built. Then atleast the box would be fully re-built and a with a warrenty too!!!
