    Gearbox chatter

    Hi, asked this in the diesel section but no response......anyone come across similar symptoms?

    Got a problem with my 04 Zafira 2.0 DTi.

    Gearbox (F23) chatters on idle, when clutch is pressed the noise go's away. Cars drives perfectly with no whines etc. Noise only noticeable when the car is idling. Just changed the gearbox oil but made no difference. Any ideas?

    Hi mate, easy one this. Release baring! as coz when pressing clutch noise goes away. pretty common. Also F23 gearboxes a proun for knackering up, sticking in gear e.t.c.
    if thats the case would benefit from a rebuild & a new clutch!

    As said before the release bearing has gone.

    Thanks for the quick response mate. I did suspect the thrust bearing but I thought it would be something far more serious!

    thrust baring/release baring, the same. suggest fit new along with new uprated clutch, perhaps a cavalier one. as also stated check gearbox 4 metal filings also as sign if box problems as F23 proun 4 it. if case get rebuilt or swopped! glad could help!
