Third gear possible problem
I have 07 plate 159 SW, 2,4jtdm engine with 210bhp.
Recently I have noticed that shifting from second to third gear goes rougher than from any other gear into any other gear. I can feel vibration on the stick during the shift phase, prior or after no vibration. Also, there is a tiny certain whine only coming when in third gear and lower revs. And during shift phase it sound like... khm... 'chiiiiiuuuup' and afterwards when I release clutch pedal whining starts and is there as long as I use third gear.
Should I be worried? Anyone has this problem or similar one? Tried to search the threads, but no luck. It is mentioned a lot, but all guys says they had gearboxes changed under warranty and no actual advice or diagnosis.
Any advice is appreciated.
