People have had it disappear or improve dramatically after changing the lower gearbox mount, others after rebuilding the gearbox. So to keep blaming it on the gear linkages is a little bit lazy. The trouble is as I am doing the whole lot I won't be able to give a definitive answer as to what it is. But I can give a best guess after examining the parts.

So basically I have the rattle that appears between 1500 and 2000 in most gears, to start off with i just thought it was likely to be a heat shield or exhaust rattling but after reading it on here i'm now convinced it's the same thing lot's on here are having, whatever that is.
So am i right in thinking the common consensus is that it's the gear linkages that are causing this? if so is this a big problem and should I be looking to take it to a garage whatever the rattle is?.
