Good Mechanic for Gearbox Problem


Hi John,

I listen to you on Sydney Radio 2UE on the weekends and would like your advice. I have a2006 BF XR6 Falcon 6 speed manual with a gearbox noise. It sounds like the input shaft bearing has failed as the rattle is evident when in neutral and clutch pedal dis-engaged (foot off clutch).

Would you know of a reasonably priced manual gear box specialist on the north shore between Hornsby and Artarmon area if possible?




Hi Greg,

The best mechanic in the universe (okay; Sydney's North Shore) is Scott Flemming, also known as The Rev Doctor. I don't have a financial relationship with Scott, but he's been servicing my cars for years. He's a straight-up honest bloke who loves what he does.

Details for The Rev Doctor: 15/31-37 Salisbury Rd, Hornsby NSW 2077. Ph. (02) 9477 7009.

Let me know how you go.
