    naughty noise from the act

    Hi everyone and a very happy new year to you all

    ive noticed the last couple of days a sort of crunch noise coming from the act when i change gear, now this only happens in 3rd gear and only at the higher rev range, all other gears are totally fine all the way up to red line changing, its only 3rd that it seems to do it in, its fine driving it at low rev range no sign in the slightest of any noise what so ever in 3rd. there are problems with her getting in to gear just a horrible crunch noise, foot is 100% down on the clutch pedal so can eliminate that lol.

    I find it really weird that A. its only in 3rd gear and B. its only at the higher rev range.

    Has anyone had anything similar on your cars or can shed any light on this, as i say its only just started to do this so must be trying to tell me something is needing attention.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    How many miles does the car have?

    It may be that the syncromesh is worn, although I think this is more of an issue when changing down.
