Please help on my cinq sporting. When pulling off in 1st gear or starting up a slope there is a grinding noise from my gear box. Could i remedy this with a new clutch?
Many thanks

rear gearbox/engine mount has probably dropped. probably not anything to do with the insides of the box itself, nor the clutch.

Gearbox mount that would be. I drove over 2000 km like this, nothing tragic happend (but eventually something really bad would happen I guess). It sounds really awful though and comes on suddenly. The mechanic that was replacing the mount said it was non-existent, more of a decoration ;)

you're looking at about 20quid for the part, and it's two or three bolts to change it. easy peasy :)
