Hi my girlfriend has a 2004 mini cooper with getreg gearbox. And I'm assuming the gearbox is making some strange noises. From the left hand footwell when the wheels do a full revolution it makes a sound almost like something is catching on the n/s wheel, and it's louder and more frequent the faster you go. When the the clutch is down you can hear it slightly at low speed.

I assume it needs a replacement gearbox, any suggestions?

Hi I have just noticed at the the n/s driveshaft has lots of play in the CV joint on the gearbox side. Could it be the driveshaft causing the noise?
