    Hi all can you all please listen to this it is a noise that is coming fro my engine it's been bugging for a while now but can just put my finger on where it is coming from or what it's coming from. Thought it might be the air box as is common but put some duck oil on the rubber mount but still I get the same noise. It seem louder as I accelerate then when I change gear it disappears then comes back. Please have a listen and give me some expert opinion.

    Hi all thank for listening to my video there is no picture just sound as I had my iPhone face down on the centre console and I have uploaded it through photobucket which is not the best. Forget the clicking noise it's just cabin noise ( phone bumping due to uneven roads) its the how can I explain it like forced air noise if that sounds right. Sorry for the late reply to this thread I'm on nights 12 hour ones at that killer

    Sounds like gearbox whine to me.??Does it make a difference when driving by:

    a) pushing in the clutch in gear

    B)/> pushing in the clutch in neutral

    c) letting out clutch whilst in neutral

    The noise is only there when I get up to about 20 mph it is not there on idling I think it's is when I change gear I take my foot off the gas it seem to be lesser then builds but seem to disappear when the cutch is pushed in ???

    Hi all still don't know what the noise is I'm getting from my engine ?? Please can people watch my sound/video again as I'm none the wiser what the noise is and it's not going away. There is some cracking noise but that's just my phone banging about on the plastic trim. If you view the video the noise is stronger 22 seconds in and 55 seconds in and it's just the engine note to listen to. PS the video is at the top of this post. Thanks
