Recently bought a Au xr6, thought it was all good until I've realised that the gear stick rattles in 4th gear and grinds out of it after I release the clutch. Was wondering if anyone has experienced it, to tell me what it is or what not so I don't have to get it pulled out just for them to tell me its stuffed. Cheers

'Grinding' sounds like the 3/4 syncro has worn out. If the gearstick is vibrating, the mainshaft bearings could need replacing. :( Do you have problems with any other gear changes up or down?

You'll have to remove the box to check & repair it anyway. Before you do that, try changing the transmission fluid and put in some friction modifier (Castrol Transmax Z or similar).

I forgot to mention that it has a short shifter in it as well, It doesn't always happen on gear changes going in to 4th but its happened just enough for me to be concerned, straight away I thought it could be a syncro but I saw that it could be because of the short shifter if that is a reason.

Nah it only occurs in 4th
Cheers I'll have a look at the fluid you mentioned

Another possibility is that the short shifter needs the stop adjusted. I had the same problem with mine after swapping it from one gearbox to another.
