    Default Whine in 3rd and 4th gear 120CDTI

    Hey all,,

    I have a 2006 SRI 120, its just ticked over to 120k miles and has started making a whining noise in 3rd and 4th gears and only when on the power. If cruising or decelerating its not there but when accelerating it sounds like s supercharger. Its not the turbo spooling and like I say 1st,2nd,5th and 6th are all fine.

    Dropped the oil, 2.5L of ATF came out, I put 75/90 fully synth in, did about 50 miles nd no change other than a nicer feeling gear change. I then added some molyslip, this seems to made it slightly better but really is only slight.

    Anyone had this, any thing else it could be?

    Can the box be easily repaired by a competent mechanic or is it a replacement job?

    Most mechanics wouldn't get involved in repairing a gearbox, they'd just swap it out for another one.

    I have built a few box's and I expect alot more complex than the F40, was just after any info as to if there are any major complications or the likelyhood of it to just drop to bits when opened.
