Sooo..I've got a strange knocking noise coming from, I believe it's the gear box. It's a very quiet knock and it isn't a constant knock either. The knocking occurs mostly in the lower gears upon acceleration and also when I hit bumps in the road. I can also feel the knocks with my hand on the shift knob and I might add the shifting doesn't feel as knochy anymore it feels sort of loose and inaccurate. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be? It's very strange one too me, I've looked it up and found nothing that really explains the issue. And also, it may or may not have anything too do with the issue but I have a hole or crack or maybe a broken bolt on the exhaust right around the same area of the car, which I will be taking too a garage to get fixed/replaced as I can't get under the car myself. I'd rather not have a garage look into to the knocking problem as they could just rip me off and make up problems that don't exist. Aside from these issues the car does seem too run fine as far as I can tell, it doesn't seem low on power or anything like that. So any help/ pointers would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi all,. So after driving her to work everyday for nearly two weeks, last night on way home from work, I was stuck in slow moving traffic and could hear a loud knocking over my stereo! I turned the stereo down and it was awful almost banging noise. As I speed up the knocking gets less. I looked at the car underneath and can't see anything out of place etc. However, the garage did say when they initially looked her over for me that there was a bolt missing from my gearbox and they would put one back in when I next came in?!? Surely it can't be that. It does sound like it's right under the car rather than suspension and all the suspension looks ok. I have no choice but to drive her today but will take it steady. Thoughts?
