‘Grinding’ / ‘ wining‘ noise at low revs


Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

Exige V6 - when the car is warm, upon pulling off in 1st gear there is a grinding / wining noise from the gearbox area . However when you speed up, and get over 1.5k revs, it disappears . Any ideas ? It is only when the car is warm, so for the first 20 mins + driving it won’t make the noise.

Car was serviced back in March and nothing was picked up by the dealer.

Car is Exige V6 2016

cheers

That sounds like the ‘gearbox rattle’ often found in Evoras (same engine & transmission):

 


TADTS, I’m afraid.

Yeah, you can also get a funny grinding feeling and noise on the down shift sometimes. My evora did it quite regular when you released the clutch going from 3rd to 2nd. It did it quite regular when it only had a few K on the clock, hasn't done it for a good while now though and I'm still on the same clutch/flywheel.
