Default 2006 Accord - Noise from manual grear box.

Hello all,

Looking for some ideas with a problem with my 2006 Honda Accord 6
speed manual transmission:

In a nutshell, there is a rattle (sometimes almost a metallic grinding
noise) that occurs on acceleration and de-acceleration which I think
comes out of the transmission.

When the clutch is pushed in the noise stops completely i.e. when
there is no loading on the gear box.

Pushing the gearstick to the left almost stops it - pushing to the
right makes it worse. Hence

I believe there is something loose or rattling in the area of the
shift forks or the change lever resulting in a rattle which is being
transmitted into the cabin through the gear change cables and
firewall.

Does this sound plausible and is it a known problem?

The car only has around 10,000 Miles (16000 Km) and this has been
progressively getting worse since day one. Honda are still trying to
convince me it's normal (after replacing the clutch saying is was
clutch rattle).

Any ideas?

Thanks

Glenn

====================================

If its within warranty, what's the difference? Get a new tranny and a
better dealer.

First I have heard of this one, but manual transmission Accords are
pretty rare in the US. Have the dealer let you drive other new ones to
see if the same noise is being made by those. I suspect that other
copies will not make the noise.
