    hi all i have an astra 1.4 which has had a recent full clutch.. hen the old
    one came off it was in a bad shape,, literally breaking up...over a couple
    of weeks i noticed a grinding noise that disppeared when i dipped the
    clutch..i took it back to the garage and he said it was the gearbox(wear and
    tear) fair comment if true...he said there was something that could be done
    to quiet it down but wouldnt divulge in case he got the work....anyone know
    how to quiet a noisy worn gearbox down without putting in a new box..just
    running the car now til its demise...regards ..baz

    If it wasn't making the noise before the clutch went it probably isn't the
    gear box, IIRC the gear box has to come off the change the clutch, perhaps
    the got something inside the box through the drive shaft holes when the box
    was off. I know my old Rover 820 box died shortly after I had the clutch
    changed and I always thought it was something they done..

    As for putting something in the box, probably just a tube of MOLY Gearbox
    grease, you van get them from Halfords for a couple of pounds.

    Although thinking about it it may just be the release bearing, either they
    didn't change it when the did the clutch or the new one is failing.
