Hello all

So some of you may've seen my thread: http://www.civinfo.com/forum/engines-transmission/324298-check-system-i-shift-warning-light.html

In short the warning light came on and although the A was in the dash no gear was engaged and it just revved I stopped and turned it off and on again and it drove but happened again a quarter of a mile or so later. Initially I tried it a few times over the next 15 minutes or so and it would start but no gear would engage. Whilst waiting for recovery the car started and gear engaged but I did not want to drive it as was on Heathrow perimeter road. By the time recovery got there the battery was totally dead and they boosted it and it drove onto the truck and then off again to park up.

I started it yesterday and there was no warning light and the gear engaged itbut I didn't drive it as busy and didn't want to be stuck on the side of the road!

Today I ran an OBD2 check that came back with nothing but then when I went to start it the battery was dead. Ordered new battery and installed it and it started and I drove up the road hoping for the best.

Unfortunately 200 metres or so up the road the light came on again but this time the car went into 1st gear and would still drive so I parked up. When I turned it on again it would not go into gear.

Spoke to a couple of gearbox specialists nearby and both seemed to think that it is most likely the cl;utch. It has 93k miles on it and I cannoit find any evidence that the clutch has ever been replaced.

I'd be grateful for any advice or opinions regarding this please.

Thanks

Paul

When I put it in gear nothing happens, but when the ignition was on I could hear something underneath. I had a car with an electric handbrake and it sounded a bit like that?
