    Bad Gearbox Noises?

    My cars developed a really bad noise from the gearbox, it sounds like its running with no oil. I checked the oil, and took the plate off (expecting loads of metal swarf in the bottom) but nothing...

    It sounds like a dry bearing or something, the diff looks fine. I thought it may be a CV joint at first but they seem ok aswell.

    It started on friday after going through some floods, but has got worse
    since.

    Its not a howling noise, but more like a grinding/scraping noise

    Any Ideas??

    Mines developed into a really lound grinding, been to the garage and they think its a collapsed bearing, I'll update later!
