    Does its make a whirring or rattleing sound when you put the clutch at any time? Theres a chance it may be the clutch release bearing.

    It happens on my 1.6 as well but only when I change fast. Not sure whats causing it but mines under warranty so I may take it in to be looked at. Will let you know how I get on. But until then sorry.

    In gear, does the gearstick wobble about?

    Might be the linkages are shot? Common enough fault - was also a common fault with the Corsa B. Our work B has 85k on the clock and the gearbox is like stirring a bucket of bricks.

    No gear stick has no movement. Alls good mate until you do a quick shift and with the windows down you can hear (I can only describe as) chink of chains for about 0.5 of a second then its gone. Car drives perfect. No problems just a noise.

    Had a look at my clutch and it turns out to be the springs rattling. Do you also get a bit of jerkyness in some gears? It won't do the clutch too much harm so I'm leaving mine as Vauxhall won't cover it under warranty. So I'm gonna leave it as I'm only about another 20-30K away I recon from a new clutch.
