Well not a good day, nice weather nice drive out, then nasty noises and no gears. Dont know

It took 10 hours to recover my car, 3 recovery vehicles later and its home at 23:00. The joys of having such a low car, and now not so much fun.

So before it goes in to be fixed, thought I would ask what people think is the issue, and I will report back in when diagnosed Thumb

So the symptoms:

Doing 40 mph going into Canterbury, not even opened the taps once and have not since bringing the car out of SORN, nasty noise 10 miles later, metallic / rubbing noise my first thought was like the wheel arch liner or something had fallen on a back wheel, stopped and checked nothing, moved off a little, a bit more noise, checked again, then no forward gears, had reverse for about 3 feet then that went.

Car goes into all gears, no noises, but no drive forward or back, my thoughts are my clutch has broken up, like to know yours Thumb

Cheers mate, it was a horrible day, 2 recovery vehicles could not get my car on with an array of fetched scaffold boards etc, so two tilt and slides later, then at last a full flat on the ground thingy. Spent 8 hours in Morrisons Cafe, feel numb !!

I think from memory its got a GT2 RS jobbie (720nm I think saw the clutch and it had Sachs Racing written around it) and a single mass flywheel. Its only done under 2k miles, but fitted 2 years ago !!

Yep, my money is on a less than happy clutch.
Hope it gets diagnosed and sorted without too much drama BF.

I hope so mate, however on the plus side, I was so bored so took a few shots not on my drive or workplace!! Towing eye in place to get it off a very very busy road !!

It was getting late, sundown, but even broken the 997 still looks good Thumb

Sorry to hear this, Boba. Getting recovered is a painful and traumatic experience even at the best of times.

Hope it’s all sorted quickly and painlessly. You’ll have to be getting out enjoying the sun in that ‘vert’ of yours!

Boba - sounds a stressful and rubbish day - sorry

As has already been said, on the plus side the car looks great. The towing eye gives it the 'competition look'......

Sorry to hear that. It doesn't sound good. If you lost forward gears first, then reverse afterwards, it sounds more gearbox than clutch to me. Surely if it was the clutch it would affect all gears the same?

Cheers guys, car got rained on for the first time last night

The car is going to a recognized specialist to fix, if it is anything to do with the clutch or flywheel, then I will be taking matters up with the clowns who fit it.

Hope not ! a new gearbox will just about make my week !! It was trying to pull forward a little in all gears like when a clutch is really really slipping, take up but not move.

Just want it fixed now

The recovery bloke said this, the diff, but I thought maybe not being 4 wheel drive.

Sorry to hear about you experience mate.

Do you think this happened because the car doesn’t get driven daily?

With some of the stories coming up on the forum at the moment it is leading me to think these cars have to be driven every or something happens.

Mine is a C4. Although your drive to the front has an electro magnetic clutch. Even so, the car can't put any srive to the front wheels if the rars are locked up. If the car would push along the floor in neautral then possibly not the diff. as this is a permanent drive with the wheels.

That sucks butt-holes and no doubt. One way or another its not going to be a cheap fix unless its as simple as a drive shaft falling off.

As others have said, its either clutch or diff..

Interesting fault, let us know what the outcome is Thumb

in my opinion all roads lead back to the clutch,

gearboxes dont just 'go' unless the fluid drained out of it and you dident realise,

if its the gearbox, its a terrible advert for the marque

Quite possible. Always had little issues bringing it out of SORN, like air con re-gas, square tyres, Rad leak, I have read they like to be used, but I doubt that has anything to do with this failure.
