Hey guys, My t5 has a whine in 1st and 2nd gear just wondering what i expect to be the possible problem and what it could cost to repair/rebuild?

Cheers and thanks Rory.

I'd be thinking it's bearing related, not too hard to fix. Drain the box & fill it with the recommended fluid & the correct amount, then see what happens, if the whine continues.

I get a little whine in 3rd recently, after a change in fluids. I will be going back to what i was using before. The current gear oil I'm using is a bit thinner than i previously used, without any whine.

Cheers

I have changed the oil, but to no avail still whines. I guess i will live with it for now, and find a good exchange box. Thanks for an idea on the problem.

Np. Have you thought about trying some gear oil stabilizer? That might shut it up for a while & reduce the wear rate until you can swap the box for another one....

isn't that part of a t5 the whine on low gears?

Search the forum for 'Lubrizol'.
Plenty of relevant reading.
