Hi Peter,

Thanks for your reply.

Gear selection has never been smooth since I got the car, I have only done about 100 miles in it since I bought it, all testing miles. Reverse has always been a pig to get into, taking several attempts of falling into second before I get reverse, first was a little sticky, however when running the selection of higher gears was ok. After this happened I was putting it in and out of gear and First\second were stickier than normal. I also got stuck in reverse and it was not easy to get it back out again. The rattle does sound like its in the bell housing area. I also noticed that the clutch pedal adjustment rod is bent, could this have contributed to a clutch plate failing?
