    Default C4 Gear Noise

    I have a 5 speed manual 05 1.6 NFU series C4 coupe

    After the vehicle has been stationary 6 plus hours, on moving off form 1st gear to second there is a faintly audible momentary whirring rattle that sounds like noisy bearings.

    Has anyone experienced same or comments

    Hi Don,

    I know of a manual series 2 Xsara with a 1.6 NFU where the gearbox developed a whine that related to the road speed. We took the gearbox out and disassembled it so that our mechanic could fit a replacement bearing set that we obtained quite economically from the UK. We also fitted a new clutch plate while the gearbox was out.

    How many kilometers has the C4 travelled?

    Cheers,

    Ken W

    Hi ken
    As of yesterday the vtr has done 84K pretty much average for an 05 coupe
    should have made it clear that I only get the noise between 1st and 2nd gear.
    if the radio is on or the windows down its inaudable
