    Default Whining Noise !!

    I have a whining noise whilst driving !

    Its coming from the front left of the car when inside driving, the noise speeds up and slows down as I do and it still happens when I release the clutch. The gear box feels fine and the gear stick don't move when accelerating.

    Also when I first pull off and change up into 2nd then accelerate I hear a click from some where near the clutch pedal.

    Could this be the dreaded M32 gear box going on me ?

    It does sound like the bearings are failing mate,I had no movement in the gearstick either when my box was knackered.best to get it checked out.on the plus side the clicking sound you hear when setting of 1st into 2nd will be the abs doing a self check and is perfectly normal.

    Hope it does, only had it a week and noticed the noise on the test drive and the salesman said he was told it goes when it's warmed up but I didn't know about them going wrong then

    No it doesn't go away when warm,typical salesman tell you any old pish to get the sale, I hope your covered under warranty mate,but if your not there's 2 places that specialise in the m32 bearing repairs.will cost around £400 -£500 for a full refurb.

    I had this also, was gutted as it was suggested it was the gearbox, turned out to be the driver side wheel bearing :-) cheap at easy fix!
