Now I'm no expert but I'm guessing it isn't supposed to look like he's been cutting rocks with the cogs?

lol.danny in relation to the engine...if u take the little black cover off the end of the gearbox(more or less under the battery tray when in car) this is what u see........well it should have cogs in there with teeth lol

if u look at the top pic i think ul see the real reason this happened..............theres a bit of a roller bearing there, which to me says that the roller has probs exploded n threw a few of the pins int between the cogs for 5th gear....which is the gears visible lol.......think the teeth strippin off is the reason it went bang and locked up lol

i think im gunna rip this one apart and experiment with rebuiding em, also see if theres any other damage lol....cos i think the diffs fukt too

least the synchros alrite .nearly lol.....the brass bit

lol@stromba....well mate looks more like a component failure than normal wear tbh.....but ur rite..it DID explode lol

My old driving instructor's mantra was "use your ears to change gears". Listen for the revs, or I get a bollocking from him if I get it wrong. I guess they must teach differently there :)

Or maybe 2live is trained to listen for different noises like crunches, screeches and screaming passengers :lol:

Poor, poor Clio - I feel for his car :cry:
