    Default 205 reverse whine

    im getting a whine in reverse in the 205.it seems to be more when you turn the wheel when reversing than when going straight back although its still there when going straight .im sure it aint the drive shafts as they are all new some 9-10 mnths ago.
    my suspisions are with the diff or gearbox.could it be oil level?would the nulon g 70 be helpfull?
    it used to have a slight whine in 4th but that seems to have gone along with a multitude of problems when the suspension was upgraded to konis.why this has happened =i dont know.
    anyway any advice would be helpfull.oh by the way its only a small whine but i want to jump on the problem straight away.-BAZZ

    Baz,

    I have the same problem with mine. I put in some of the nulon stuff and it went away, But the problem came back a couple of months ago only 10 times louder. So my advce would be book it into the specialist now rather than just try to cover it up with nulon.,

    Cheers Nick

    Baz, the diff and gearbox run in the same oil, so you couldn't tell in which one the Nulon cured the problem.

    Are you sure it's not normal whine? Most diffs whine a bit in reverse because the gear profiles aren't designed to run backwards.

    Hi Bazz,

    Stuey is right. How loud are we talking all 205 have some whine in reverse. Mine was the diff and the box was rebuilt.

    Reverse is straight cut with an extra gear put in place to achieve the direction change, I would think it was normal noise, but by all means add the Nulon. I have had good results with it.

    I did more than 60 motorkhanas in mine, often using full throttle and 5000 rpm in reverse, and did not manage to do it any harm.
