I'm sure they will - they've done enough of them by now.

Hi: felixthecat... The Tranny only started grinding during very hot days and in stop& go traffic. Audible with the sunroof open...even my wife heard it and asked "What's that"?

Hi: All... I haven't had to much driving time to access the clutch/trans. redo!!! The car drives as new and the repair took the full day. Seems there's no short cuts to perform the job. Only thing I noticed was the car didn't recognize my key. It unlocked the door manually ok, but on start up set off the alarm!!!
