Are you sure the noise is coming from the gear box? I thought the engine might be pinking with too much fuel going in.

Thanks mate,but its definitely not pinking,and the noise does seem to come from the gear box area,its a real weird one. Especially as it only does it when the weather is really cold. When its above say 5c its fine.

bump stops are not included in the MOT, even with one missing they can not fail the car.

Thanks mintalkin that's good news, I feel a lot happier now,cos i've just spent out a lot on servicing, and a re spray on both bumpers,so if I don't manage to find any new ones from fordparts I would have beeen gutted.
Thanks again mate

Seeing as they're right at the top of the shocks and only come into play when the car bottoms out I'd say they'll be ok as long as they're not obviously perished.

Thanks Stoney thats what I was thinking. I have ordered a new pair from Ford parts but they are on back order, so whether I will ever get them is another matter.
Thanks again

Hopefully I will be
