2 weeks ago i bought from a autosales a mini one 2004 (january vin 160 000km ) , i tested good all the front gears, 1,2,3,4,5 and they works perfect and well, fast changement, no problem on syncros, no bearings noise.......

so...when i engage the reverse gear :( the car slap, the gear engage well, so i hear from the gear box a CLA CLA CLA CLA like a woodpecker bird in my gearbox, and when i increase the speed, the noise increase the speed , more fast, and a cltuch bad smell....

this JUST with reverse box, i tested the first 1th gear, and i dont hear any splap or claclacla sound, just the reverse....

i bring my car to who sell me the car, its a mechanic, he want to pull down the gearbox the next week , to find the problem.

He talks as who knows these gearbox units (midlands ) so i havent full trust in him,
