Mechanic said sounds like its the diff ooouch that sounds expensive gearbox will have to come off, gave me a contact to a gearbox specialist, so dropped it off left it with them for a couple of days and over the weekend get a phone call, right found the problem (sweating and biting nails in fear, this is gonna hurt my pocket) right its your gearbox mounting bracket it come apart, ok can you fix it yeah, how much, 14 for the sheared bolt 25 for bracket 1.04p for the washer. plus 2 hours labour , you should have seen the smile on my face Ive never been so happy to pay a mechanic after he told me that .

what it was doing was when accelerating the gearbox was trying to move and knocking/vibrating on the mounting thats why the misses could feel it in her foot well. showed me the brackets and it was destroyed half of it was missing threads from the bolt imprinted into it from trying to move, anyway very happy with the outcome as I could have been looking at about 1000 instead it come to a total of 145 inc VAT
Thats whats happening in my clio when ever i change gear i hear and feel a knocking in my footwell, could this be the same problem as it is doing my head in!

It sounds possible Kirsti, I would take it back to the garage you purchased from and have it fixed under the warrenty. If you are having other problems draw up a list and get them to sort the lot.
