Got a noise, looking for ideas
Starting to get outstanding jobs done, rear wheel bearing replaced and its nice to have silence, handbrake cable renewed and it was easier than expected. I now have one thing left to sort, the noise, cant decide what it is am baffled, only seems to happen 1St 2ND sometimes 3RD gear and seems to start at around 1800 revs and seems to continue until you press the clutch to change gear. 4th 5th or 6th gear do not seem to get the noise even at specified revs, sounds a bit like the backing plate of a disk brake catching but that would happen all the time in every gear, cars is on 74000 miles with original clutch so wondered if it maybe some part of clutch wearing does not squeal like a dry bearing. Also wondered if it could be something like egr operating and i'm hearing air moving, top and bottom turbo hoses are brand new and have replaced small bore vacuum pipes, also been underneath looking for somewhere thats catching but no luck.
Any ideas welcome, does not affect driveability but i just need to know what it is.
Also forgot to mention it does not make the noise if you just rev the car.
