my whine seems to be when you come of the power in a high gear but no noise when on the power?

do you think changing to the Castrol might sort this out because it could be just the oil?

changing the oil made it bit better (maybe)I was going to try this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Forte-Car-Diff-Gearbox-Wear-Noise-Gear-Oil-Treatment-/261309198652?pt=UK_Vehicle_Oils_Lubricants_Fluids&hash=item3cd73df13c it worked in a land rover, but never got around to it.

was thinking of that stuff aswell but have read up on the Castrol oil and its supposed to be very good on on gearboxes.i think it could be because its fully synthetic and ford gearbox oil might be semi?

How often should gearbox oil be changed? Ive got a 08 focus 1.6 petrol with 140k kms on the clock. Should it have been changed or when would it be due a change?

I would most likely go for 75w/90 fully synthetic. IIRC for an ib5 box its 2.3 litres. Personally I wouldn't buy the ford stuff, i tend to use triple qx stuff from eurocarparts but I do buy 5 litres at a time so does work out cheaper.
