New guy here

Hi all!
Bought my first mini today, a 2001 mini one.
Body is mint, interior is mint, but rattle from clutch area.
I only paid a few hundred quid for it, so happy to take a chance its the gearbox knackered.
Long mot and tax too!
Cant wait to get it home, but wont happen till next week.

Hi and welcome to Mini2.

Sounds like you got a bargain even if you have to swap the gearbox, lots of info on here if you search for Rover 'Midland' gearbox. Failing Mini gearboxes normally make a whining bearing noise or a noise like a helicoptor rotor.
