    Default Gearbox noise?

    Hi
    I have a 1.8vvt on a 56plate with 59K on the clock.Just lately i seem to be getting quite a bit of noise when cruising in higher gears & under engine braking.It sounds like a whirring kind of noise,it does go if i press the clutch pedal in.
    Am i looking at a gearbox problem or could it be clutch related?
    Thanks
    Steve

    Have look see if you got a hole in the bottom of the gearbox!! changed a few of these on the 1.8.

    Thanks for the replies,can't find any holes in the gearbox & no evidence of oil leaks.Is the diff separate to the main gearbox or would it all need replacing if it is that?.
    Thanks again.

    the diff can be replaced but just as easy to swap a gearbox , jack up the front get someone to hold one wheel and spin the other fast by hand and listen at g/box for noise.
    mine was fine on the power but soon as your of the gas it whirred like hell . changed it for a close ratio box and never looked back
