    Dogboxes have straight cut gear so they whine in all 5 forward gears like it would on a normal car in reverse.

    So does it whine?

    Id guess youd just need a rebuild. Dogboxes arent too common for a street car.

    Unless your car is super heavily modded (i.e. a full fleged race build), I doubt you have one either.

    I'd try the clutch pedal adjustment on TRE's site or RRE's site first, and change your tranny and clutch fluids if you haven't already.

    There is a drain and a fill plug. Make sure to loosen the fill plug first becuase if you can't get it out, and it's already drained.....how will you get fluid in? Check VFAQ for tips and instructions.
    A popular replacement is Penzsoil Synchromesh, found at Autozone.
