Strange "clicking" noise when shifting
My car just started making a loud clicking noise when shifting from 2nd to 3rd or from 4th to 5th. It sound like something is loose. It is not the sound you normally hear when the gears engage upon shifting. For example, when I shift from 4th to 5th, I hear a loud click as the car is taken out of 4th and another loud click before 5th gear is fully engaged. Same sound when going from 2nd to 3rd. Again, this is different from the normal sound that is heard when the gears engage. The noise does not occur when shifting back and forth betwen 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th or 5th and 6th. My car is a Feb 05 build and has the newer (stronger) shifter.
Has anyone else had this problem. If yes, what did the dealer do to fix it?
