Hi People, My young fella has just bought himself a 04 Manual 3lt wagon and it has developed a whirring noise when changing down gears. Strange noise changing down gears . - Car is not causing any problems, no whining, no clutch slip, but it when I change down a gear from say. Just recently I've noticed a whining/whirring noise when changing down gears, especially when the car is cold. Especially noticeable at low.

I've had my mito since last August and only in the last couple of months I've noticed an intermittent noise when I change down gear, normally. This sounds like a metal on metal sound coming from the left hand side of the car. The faster I let the clutch out as I change down the the gears.

The sound of the engine can tell you when you need to change gear. As you accelerate the Don't coast with the clutch pedal down or the gear lever in neutral.

Mine does the same thing if I'm shifting down and not matching the revs for the shift. Usually you can keep 2nd gear all the way down to 6 mph.
