I know others have written of the noise the Elise makes when off the throttle and the engine is in the 3300 rpm range. My car makes the noise when I'm coasting down and the rpms hit that magic zone and I can stop or change the noise by wiggling the shifter.
I recall seeing a thread a long time back where someone fixed the issue by adding a small weight to the shift linkage on the trans to damp the vibration. I've searched for that thread with no luck.
Anyone know the thread I'm thinking of? I'd love to solve this and have quiet on overrun.
That was me.
Send me your email address and I will see if I can find some photos.
It drove me nuts for a couple of years before I nailed it.
