    Default Clutch/Gearbox Noise

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone can diagnose an annoying noise for me, its coming from the Clutch/Gearbox area and is only noisey when im slowing down in any gear. It sounds like a worn wheel bearing noise but from the gearbox area and only when slowing down but if i press the clutch pedal whilst moving or accelerate it goes completely away. It started doing this 2 weeks ago and hasnt got any better or worse. The noise is not there at all when the car is standing still either with the clutch pressed or without.

    My car is a Petrol 2003 1.8 SRi manual with 89k on the clock. A local garage has suggested checking or changing the gearbox oil to see if it will sort it but i dont know which direction to go with it.

    Any help would be much appreciated thanks in advance.

    Cheers Scott

    it's internal waer inth egearbox causing backlash which is making the 'howl' when you decellrate as the geartrain thrust is applied to the opposite side of the gearset on the overrun...

    best case scenario, change the gearbox oil..worstcase scenario it will need new bearings/gears in the box ..
