Hi there , hoping someone can help as at my wits end with this car , got
The 1.9 Cdti sri 58 plate , gearbox went nearly 2 years ago , had it replaced with recon along with clutch , dual mass etc but started to hear this noise , the box was under warranty ao took it back to the garage who agreed it was gearbox and put another re con one in but still the same , in the end after having it for 3 weeks they gave up and said I should take to Vauxhall for £90 an hour , iv had 3 other mechanics look at it but no answer just sounds like gearbox , nothing similar on the web either apart from recently someone has posted a vid with the exact same noise


It's just gone on so no answers unfortunately , anyway sorry for long post but I have pretty much replaced every part in this car and spent thousands so I can't afford to spend any more on investigation so hoping someone may have heard it before to save my sanity ! Thank you

Thank you and sorry I forgot to add that the noise starts about a mile ish into a journey , lasts a few minutes then don't hear it again for rest of day (unless car sat for a while ) apart from the very occasional click

I couldn't really hear your video that well. Is it noisy on tick over? The dmf usually rattles on tick over, when its on its way out.

Sorry it is quiet , I can probably hear it so well cos I'm so used to it , it's starts at 10 secs in when they put the window down , no noise on tick over like I say just 5 mins or so into the journey it starts in 2nd 3rd and 4th gears not in 5th from what I remember and not every time either , just been out in it and nothing, just the odd click. The garage changed the dmf with the gearbox so shouldn't be on its way out if they actually did it!

Welcome back mate! (y)

@Hayleym, can't here anything in that video that shouts out to me that it's the gearbox. Google some supercharger sounds and compare them to your noise. Does it change pitch when accelerating/decelerating?

Thanks , I personally don't think it's the gearbox cos it's the same when they put a different one in and it definitely felt like a different box , it is louder on some days but doesn't seem to be affected by acceleration. Seems to not be as bad on a hot day. I think I have watched every Astra noise video online and can't find anything similar until the one posted
