Falcon TE50 Tremec Gearbox Issue

About 3 months ago I purchased a manual TE50. I have travelled 3500 km and the car has developed a terrible knocking through the gearbox only at idle. Ford tells me that this is normal for the Tremec box. They can't be serious. This is spoiling a brilliant car for me.

I've heard about that too... and yeah, Ford says this is normal... apparently its on all Tremec box and the knocking will be on the BA's as well... they didnt really tell me why it happens, just that it does...

sad but true...

Is that why you are selling the car?

My 3650 has a noticeable vibe through the shifter and the clutch pedal - very strange. I was going to have it looked at. When you find out what it is post in the main ff.com forums too please.
