Gearbox whine?


I'm wondering if anyone can help. Our 02 147 2.0TS manual exhibits a gearbox 'whine' between 68 and 80 mph in 5th, it is fine above and below those speeds in 5th.

Is it something all 147's do? Likely to be something that could get worse? Any easy fixes?

Many thanks

I'd start by checking the box oil level and making sure there were no signs of leaks from the gearbox.

Re: Gearbox whine?

Might be worth draining the oil fron the gearbox and see if it looks like metallic paint

You can then fill it up with new oil and see if that makes a difference?
