been to the gearbox place and he said there is something wrong with the gearbox but he seems to think its the clutch bearing which has only just been replace on Wednesday when new clutch was put in,he told me they can go that quickly? he said if its the gearbox will repair at no cost but if its the clutch bearing will have to pay labour.
will be no surprise if he comes back saying its the bearing......

does the noise go or change when the clutch pedal is pressed when moving or stationary? I've never heard of one going in a week but like everything it really depends on the quality of parts used. Is the noise the same pre and post having the clutch changed?

it starts when you push the clutch and fades out when its down but comes back when you let it off, noise is the same...

When they changed the clutch did they do the release bearing to?

update on gearbox.

was booked in for today, had to drop it off last night because wasn't able to take it this morning, so left it and dropped keys through letter box in envelope with name and mobile number on it.
got phone call early this morning asking why Mini and keys were left, explained it was booked in for them to look at gearbox because it was making a noise eventually they found paperwork for job.
I left it until 2 to ring up to see how it was going surprise surprise not even started they will ring back to let us know when it will be ready.
we have taken half day off work to be able to get there before they close, so thinking they haven't even started I knew it would be at least a 5 hour job so wont be ready today, so rung them back to see when it would be they said next week, obviously they hadn't booked it in so now trying to fit it in.
after some arguing they are starting it now and hopefully be ready tomorrow if not sat morning.

so just to let you know maybe best to stay away from UKGEARBOX.ERITH,KENT
don't want to do it under warranty and very unhelpful receptionist.....
