Proper rebuild will be more $$$ then your car is worth....Get a good used one, but make sure its from an ETA not an I, since you need to bolt the crank sensors on the belhousing....

hey guys, my first second and third gear are making a knocking noise under load and when siting in neutral. when i push the clutch in the knock stops. im guessing its the syncros? but i dunno...
how much is a 5 speed rebuild anyone know? or would a straight up swap in a different tranny be easier.
P.S. anyone selling a good condition eta tranny?
Input layshaft bearing. Very very very common on e30 transmissions. Mine has 550k on it and while it makes a huge racket, it still works fine. Just keep driving, it will probably outlive the car. If the trans jumps out of gear or grinds into gears, then you have a problem.
FYI, this is the sound my trans makes:
And it still works fine. I have never heard another e30 trans as loud as this one, so if mine works, yours will too
