Backlash (clonking) while changing gear at low speed

15 June 2009 - 11:25 AM

I have a Fusion 1400 TDCI Diesal 2007, mileage 21k.

While accelerating from stationary, each time I change gear particularly from 1st to 2nd & 3rd gear, there is a clonking from the transmission. Doesn't occur when decelerating. Suspected backlash maybe in driveshaft. Garage is unable to diagnose but acknowledge the problem (its not engine mounting problems).

Any suggestions? Thank you.
