    And if your gearbox has gotten too hot, mine was fine when I got it but I do motorway driving each day and sometimes abit fast at quite straights *cough* autobahn *cough* and I think mine got to hot :/

    So today my car has started making a really bad noise, when I'm going above 50mph in any gear it makes a loud droaning noise. I'm 97% sure it's coming from the gearbox but just wondering if anyone might think it's something else? I've read all the threads about gearboxes but don't remember seeing anything that describes a drone noise? I can still hear the whine it makes which has gotten louder and this drone is in addition too, it goes away when the clutch is pressed. Similar drone in 3rd 4th 5th and 6th with the whine in the background. Hard to hear the noise on its own as my exhaust is making noise at the same time when it's decelerating and accelerating. I've put my car in storage and am gonna get it booked in for a refurb but just wanted to see if the gearbox can't be making this noise and it's a simple fix (yeah right)

    No eml lights to indicate anything other the the gearbox
