    confused sounds like water in my gearbox??

    hi, can anyone help, i went through a few deep puddles (small floods) the other day and since ive has a noise coming from my gearbox, it sounds like the gears are splashing around in water, but when the car has warmed up i get a winning noise every time i put my foot down to go faster. could it be that ive got water in my gearbox or is it something else?
    any ideas???

    Manual or auto, the only place the water could get in is through the breather, and you would need to go through some very deep water for some time or be stationary for the water to seep in. The thrust bearing might be at fault though.

    The thrust bearing is in the bellhousing, where the clutch is, it is on the right if veiwed from looking into the engine bay, that is probably why you say the noise comes from the passenger side, as that is the side it is on, does the noise change when you "dip" the clutch pedel?
    PS if the thrust bearing is "knackered" it will whine.

    yes when i dip the clutch the noise goes. ive also noticed that when i put it into gear and lift the clutch up thats when it makes the noise, and it will whine when im at a stedy speed.
    thanks a lot for your help.

    Sounds like you need a new thrust bearing. you might as well have a new clutch at the same time.
