For a while now I have a had 'clicking' noise' (like having a clacker thing/a bit of card in pushbike spokes) from the front right of my GSi and over time it has steadily getting louder. It only happens when its in gear, loudest when in 2nd and mainly on over run (when its in gear and car is slowing down with no accelleration). When the clutch is depressed or its not in gear, there is no noise!
I took it took the motor to a transmission specialist today and they had a look and suspect it to be a 'PINION HEAD BEARING' ... and have quoted me over £600 plus vat to repair it. Basically take out the gearbox, strip it, replace these bearings and oil seals and put it back together.
what is this Pinion head bearing thing?
Anyone got any thoughts, suggestions and/or am I being ripped off?
