Re: problems with 6speed box

What a crock. "Rollover" noise is the whirring you get at idle with the clutch out. Caused by incorrect box preload, incorrect oil, non-insulated clutch hub, alloy shifters. Is the clunk when you let the clutch out, or as the shifter crosses the halfway point into the next gear?

Re: problems with 6speed box

Sounds to me like it's nothing to do with the transmission. Check your driveshaft joints for play. Do you have independent rear suspension? If you do, also check your subframe supports on that.

To check the driveshaft, get under the car and turn the shaft at the joints. If one side of the joint wiggles while the other side does not move, you have bad joints- that's what it sounds like to me. Also, try to wiggle the joints inside the driveshaft. You may have one on each end. It's a cheap fix.

Keep us updated on what you find.

The clunk will be caused by backlash. It may be clutch plate, CV joint in tailshaft, diff backlash, but the most likely cause is play in the rear half shaft Cv joints, generally the left hand inner, assuming vehicle is a sedan.
