    Default Whining Noise

    Just checking to see if you guys have any idea what this noise is, it might just be the turbo being a bit whiny for all I know, but I just wanted to double check, especially since I think I need a gearbox rebuild since mine twitches in 1st and 5th and I read that gearbox whine is a thing so it'd be nice to know if that's the problem.

    Anyway, here's the video, it's not too obvious to hear in the video however it's very obvious when you're actually sat in the car, but it's most prominent in 2nd, so I'm just trying to make the sound more audible, it's easier to hear towards the end though I think.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Ok cheers mate, do I need to get it fixed asap?

    If so know any decent places to take it to? I'm currently in the Gloucestershire area.

    It depends - it could make that noise for another 20k and be be fine, or it could go tomorrow.

    Best to get it sorted ASAP though for piece of mind. Halifax Gearbox and Clutch is closes to you, followed by AS Autocare in Widnes

    Is that to replace just the 6th gear bearing? If so then that's a reasonable price.

    He said something about a hub? And I think because my gearstick twitches in 1st and 5th he said he’ll probably have to change those bearings which would take the final price to £535?

    yeah that seems reasonable - I paid around £640 for a full rebuild, so all bearing replaced.
