Fiesta Gearbox/clutch Whine


Recommended Posts

My fiesta 2003 1600 ghia has a pronounced whine from the gearbox clutch area when moving in 1st and to a lesser degree 2nd gear when starting from cold - especially if the air temp is low; after it warms up this drops down to just audible. Is this normal or suggest a possible problem?

I stand by my diagnosis then.

I'm no expert but whining gear boxes are definitely a symptom of lay shaft bearing wear.

If anyone else has any ideas I'm sure they will be appreciated here.

I would strongly advise professional diagnosis though and get more than one quote.

In the long run a guaranteed overhauled box will be far more cost effective than a new one but fitting will still sting a bit I'm afraid.
