Rover 200: noisy gear changes - Roger Jones
My partner's P-reg Rover 200 turbo diesel (67k on the clock) makes a grinding noise when she changes gear from second to third and from third to fourth, a noise that is not audible on any other gear change, even down the box between the same gears. Any clues as to what may be causing this?

Does anyone know anything about a modification for Xantias to stop water getting in and lodging under back seats?

I posted this at perhaps too quiet a time on the list and received no responses other than one about a leaking Xantia! So, here goes again:

Are you sure this is a gearbox noise and not an exhaust resonance that occurs as the revs dip slightly between upshifts.

If not it does sound like a box problem and an exchange may be required.

Have you checked the oil level or thought about changing the oil as a cheap long shot?
