WIRRING SOUND COMMING FROM FRONT END NOT CLUTCH GEARBOX OR BEARINGS

2000 Volkswagen Golf • 90,000 miles

A whirring sound comes when I decelerate and accelerate

Start with removing the external drive belts and running the engine if the noise is still there it will proberbly be a faulty timing belt idler or tensioner bearing. Check this and let me know what you find, if in doubt about doing this get a mechanic to do the check for you.

The differential (final drive) bearings in the gearbox may be bad. When was the last time the gear oil has been changed?
