Hi there all,

little worried about this one.

If i go a bit sharpish, then 1st to second quite rapidly i get a knock, lound knock.

I'm hoping it is my loose spare wheel in the front, though the knock happens as i go into second so i doubt it......

Anyone got any ideas? All other gears don't knock?

Cheers again..

Sorry to state the obvious have you tried to secure the spare wheel and drive, or even take it out completly, that may be a start

I thought that my engine mounts were getting worn when I experienced a knocking sound, apeared to come from the gear box area. I then had a wheel bearing fail, nearside rear.

Since replacing this bearing the knock has gone away. I occasionally got it going into reverse, mostly changing gear or pulling away in low gear.

Garage were stumped but must have been the bearing.

Worth checking your bearings but I am probably totally barking up the wrong tree.
