edit just read that above!

what sort of noise is it?whining, crunching, just sounding like metal on metal? its hard to tell from here but it might be damaged cogs, syncromesh or selectors or it might be low on oil!

thats most prob down to worn gears it "should" be ok for now.. BUT it could fail loosing 4th an 5th. best thing to do is to change the gearbox oil for a decent one to try and postpone it!

put a racing oil in it, that'll sort it. the only way to fill the gearbox is through the dipstick tube. i have a home made filler which i made for our 2 subaru's, he can borrow it if he's stuck.

or

take it up to dyno demon in neston, say sean from cadscoobies recommended.

also tell your lad to join cads on www.cadscoobies.com loads of info on there, they're a friendly bunch too.

If the gear lever uses a linkage to the gearbox, the linkage may be out on the 'left' of the gearbox (meaning, it's not going into gear on 4/5). wink Or the synchro's are on their way out!
Does it do it over a certain speed?

checked it today the box is low on oil causing the rough sound but whilst driving in 5th if the gearstick gets pushed over a bit it sounds really rough grinding ... it needs a new clutch anyway so where getting the box out to recondition smile
