    need help/advice

    my lude is making a knocking sound when i change gears, i dont think its anything to do with the gearbox itself, im pretty sure its to do with the momentum, as it doesnt make a noise when i change from forth to fifth(being a smooth shift). First to second is the loudest knock... it comes from roughly the middle of the car, under the rear seats, any thoughts on what it could be or if this has happened to anybody else.. just wondering on a fix and the cost.

    cheers for any help.

    Probably unrelated but my prelude was making a knocking sound in the rear when going over bumps. I got a wheel alignment and the notes said something like "backing plate hitting handbrake cable".
    Doesn't make the clink sound anymore.

    Look at them to see if they are broken?
    They are quite hard to get to, and unless you know what youre doing id go to a mechanic.
