Re: Transmission Noise
the tranny i just swapped in mine just recently has a bad mainshaft bearing. when i am coasting with the clutch in or out in neutral or in gear it makes a metal meshing sound. if it makes this noise when its stopped, clutch out, its most likely your throwout bearing. ive never owned a zuk w/o that noise. even with new ones. also if its when you are moving when it makes this noise it could be the intermediate shaft to the tcase. that round weed shield thing broke free on one of my shafts and made a similar noise.
build it, break it, then build it better.
