Selespeed making a 'ffffffff' noise?
my 147 2002 Selespeed has started making a slightly odd noise when changing up the gears (1-2-3-4-5). The best way I can describe it is.... you know those hoons with the big blowers on their souped up cars, when they change gears, there's a major hissing/blowing noise. Well mine is a little bit like that, not as loud, not a hiss, more of a lower pitched 'fffffffff' for a second or two on each gear change. Doesn't happen going 5-4-3-2-1. Perhaps some kind of blowout of air, but surely it would have stopped working properly by now. It's still working just fine, and the fluid level is normal, but I'm fairly sure it wasn't there a month ago, but has been there for a week or two now, and I'm worried that an expensive repair bill is around the corner.
Weird one, but anyone got any thoughts?? Where to start??
Appreciate any ideas...
