    Gearbox problems :(

    Hi all, well as the title says im having some problems, i got in my car this morning leaving work and discovered that i have no second gear everytime i select 2nd i hear a huge clunk sound and it jumps straight back out! yet every other gear is fine :S my car is a astra H 1.9 cdti 150,

    just wondering wheter anyone else has ever came across this problem and if any of you know whats causing this? just thought if any of you guys know then i could save a few quid.

    Any help would be great

    thanks
    lee

    hiya mate, don't want to put a downer on the situation I've just had exactly the same problem on my 150 worse when using sport mode, engaging 2nd gear would clunk and grind then eventually went in and was getting worse, also had bad whining in both 2nd, 5th and 6th up the rev range.

    Took it to Vauxhall who said the gearbox bearings had gone and had to replace the whole unit under warrenty.
