This is a model that was not sold in the U.S. So I hope you can still answer my question. I recently took my car in for a standard check-up at the dealership (it goes in regularily about twice a year) and was told that it needed:
1) Clutch fluid replacement
2) Fuel Injection System cleaning
3) Rear brake adjustment
After looking over my repair records I agreed to have them do these reapirs. But they also took it for the test drive and have diagnosed that it needs a bearing replacement in the transmission. They said they heard a noise that indicated this. They also recomended that I replace my clutch at the same time, if I haven't done this recently, as it would save some labour costs.
I had told them that I had been noticing it was hard to gear into 1st sometimes, even while in motion, but they said that it wasn't related to the bearing needing replacement.
My question is this. Does this sound legitimate and should I be able to hear the noise that they are refering too? Should I get a second oppinion?
Any advice you can give me would be appreciated.
have the same problem?
