I've just got my gearbox back from the reconditioners today and there still is a slight bearing sounding noise still coming from it. When I push in the clutch this noise disapears. When it was in the shop they put a new bearing kit through the box. I suspected this noise was the input shaft bearing, and it was pretty tired when they stripped it out. The noise is not as bad as before but still noticible. They reckon its the anti-rattle plate. There were none available in town to replace it with, and they thought is was allright. It is mentioned on the invoice about the slight noise and that they suspect it is the anti-rattle plate. Does anyone agree with what the gearbox reconditioners have diagnosed as the source of the noise or is there anything else that could be causing this problem?

Cheers

Could be a throwout bearing but I don't know the exact throwout device on a patrol. Was the clutch replaced?

Usually if the gearbox is taken out, it is time to renew the clutch and the throwout bearing.

Clutch had been replaced approximately 40,000 and had minimal wear, gearbox reconditioner reckoned that the throw out bearing was fine.

Don't be concerned it's normal my patrol's done it for years.
When i fitted a new clutch it made it worse but i used a petrol clutch my 4.2d because it stops all the low down vibration and grawling noise.
