Hi from Thailand
My Vitara has developed a whine in the gearbox/clutch over several weeks, started slight now noisier.
Here are the clues:
It is sporadic. When I depress the clutch and engage gear and throttle up slightly it starts. And I can change gears whilst not moving and it remains tha same noise. It is actaully a sort of slightly scrapey sound slightly variable sound rather than a high pitched whine. Everything still works perfectly.
There is oil around the gearbox underneath but I had the level checked and it's OK.
The speedo cable has been disconnected quite some time ago at the box causing a "check engine" light but I have no reason to believe it's a problem it has run well like that for a long time and frankly as I love the car and will not sell it and the law is loose here I can't be bothered giving up the car half a day to fix it.
I'd be grateful for help the mechanics here are quite good but I look to above. Ie the West!
have the same problem?
