    Recently my Jetta, which has only done 58000 miles developed a clicking sound, a bit like a faulty wheel bearing, except that it was from inside gearbox. I don;t know how long it will keep going.... maybe years as it is strangely intermitent.
    Anyone know what it might be, do I really need a new gearbox, and if so where is the best place to find one?

    could be a diff rivet broken which is quite common or a chipped gear
    get it looked at before it becomes unrepairable

    Thanks for the reply. I have taken to garage and they suggest a 'new' gearbox, as reparing the old one is a very labour intensive, and possibly more expensive option.
    Sometimes it runs quietly, or if noisy, can become quite if it goes over some bumps- not necessarily logical!
