BA XR8 gearbox noise (not shunt)
Was driving home this morning, thinking that i should book the ute in for it's 15,000 km service for the start of December when i realised that i could hear a noise when i was shifting down gears. Stupid irony.
The ute is a manual, 5 speed, and i can hear a definite metallic scrapping noise when i shift down from all gears and it will continue if i let the car roll. It goes when i accelerate but comes back when i back off. There isn't any clunks or anything like that. It's still smooth (well coming from a 5 speed manual EA falcon i think it's smooth), but it definitely sounds like a metallic scrapping noise.
The ute hasn't been driven hard. It rarely goes over 4k revs. Doesn't tow anything. About 50/50 freeway/city type driving.
Any ideas on what it could be?
Thanks in advance.
