    As I change gear letting the clutch pedal out I can feel a judder coming through the pedal. And after Ive drove the car for a while. Would put you in mind with a bit heat in it moving off in first gear the car would judder. Was brand new oem genuine dc2 clutch kit and both lower torque mounts and rear engine/gearbox mount are brand new.any ideas I'm thinking maybe flywheel could be warped

    Does it go away when you slightly depress clutch. I would say its the flywheel.

    has it started since clutch been changed or was the issue there before it was, it could be misaligned or a faulty clutch, could be a a gearbox problem or a flywheel problem also

    Got clutch checked at a clutch specialist and all good. Got flywheel checked and face cleaned and all good going to replace the pilot bearing on the centre of the flywheel. The box was worked at a few months ago by a well respected gearbox repair specialist as diff broke so got it changed and all was good but I think the input shaft bearing is gone as I can hear a bearing spinning and when clutch pedal is pressed it goes away so box is getting opened again and all fixed so hopefully this will be it sorted.

    Juddering would normally be clutch related

    I would always replace the input bearing when a box is opened for the 1st time as it's usually the 1st to fail

    You may as well do it now while the box is off if it's noisy



    I did a k20 box this week and the bearing on the opposite end to the input bearing on the mainsfaft was noticeably worn so it was replaced at the same time

    Would it be OK to add lucas transmission stabiliser to the gear oil. Heard it's good stuff that it sticks to everything and doesn't drip off like oil would. Was thinking it would keep everything permanently lubricated in the box. My mechanic friend said about it

    Got to love the specialists, so special that they don't even have to clean after themselves, :rolleyes:
    The word specialists itself just fixes $hit alone :))

    Guy has my box sorted. Said that it looks like it was never washed out and on removing the diff found pieces of my old diff that decided to explode. And that the wrong bearings were on the diff,black silicone used to seal up the box, and stripped bolts. So we'll done to the place that charged me 200quid and done half a job

    Just having a read through this thread, glad you got your box sorted.

    Do you want to name said garage?

    It also got me thinking is it worth starting a thread or sticky for bad garages so people won't take their cars there and let them potentially f**k there car/engine/gearbox up?

    For a honda it's best to fix it yourself, they are not very hard to work on and there is lots of information online for all repairs, the money you spend to get it fixed you could buy the tools and parts and still have change over ,
    If you can follow procedures by the book you really can't go wrong. At least you know it's done right and you learn something along the way, that way you can then charge other people to do the same work , win win ,
