    Unhappy gearbox nightmare‏

    im going out of my mind with my MK5 ASTRA 1.8SRI PETROL GEARBOX.......
    its been to two vauxhall dealerships and they cant seem to help... it
    has even had a new gearbox and clutch (apparently).
    My gearbox crunches a lot ESPECIALLY WHEN GOING FROM NEUTRAL TO REVERSE after GOING
    FROM FIRST GEAR TO NEUTRAL. When revs are even slightly high it
    crunches.. EVEN WHEN I WAIT THE RIDICULOUS "2 SECONDS" WITH CLUTCH FULLY
    PRESSED. Trying to reverse park on a busy street makes me look like a
    total idiot. Even the supposed chief mechanic at the vauxhall dealership
    doesnt know what to do (or cant be bothered) and they ASKED ME TO TRY
    AND FIND OUT WHAT IT COULD BE..... yes im not joking. Also, the gearbox
    is generally very very rough, through all gears.

    PLEASE CAN U HELP... MY WARANTEE RUNS OUT SOON.... MY CAR IS 57 PLATE.

    the unfortunate likelihood is theyre bluffing on you until your warranty runs out mate. i bet they suddenly have an answer for you when your warranty has run out
