    Spinning Noise

    Hi, when i accelerate past 3.5k revs there seems to be a kind of spinning noise that can only be described like a rolerskate wheel spinning. Seems to be coming more from the drivers side i think, but its only when past 3.5k revs.

    Is it the gearbox?? or somthing else? bearing?

    Thanks Guys (astra-sport to the rescue as usual)

    Sounds like it could be cambelt rollers mate, get it checked asap last thing you want is one of those to fail and kill your engine.

    The gear box is bolted to the engine, not directly below the gear stick if that is what you mean :?

    It may be a loose gearbox selector linkage. The work Corsa does it too, if you hold the gear stick the noise stops.

    Does holding the gearstick stop the noise, or can you feel a vibration through the stick?
