Just wanted to know if anyone has gearbox noise at idle?
I have had my mira classic for 3-4 months now and have noticed at idle after the car is at full operating temp, the gearbox sounds like the main shaft bearing is worn, because if you press the clutch in the noise disappears! I actually work at a Daihatsu garage and have put all the correct oils in the gearbox, transfer box, engine and rear axle to see if this could help. It has made the rear axle a lot more quiet, but the slight rattle noise at idle is still there from the gearbox!!
The reason i am asking is that i would like to know if others who have one of these fantasic little cars have this noise, and if its normal? I do not want to get the box out, strip it, fit new bearings etc, just to find its the same. Also i am going to be increasing the horse power by around 45 extra bhp, inc induction kit and nitrous oxide and i do not want the box going bang down the drag strip!!!
Any help will be greatly welcomed!!
