gearbox whine?

hi all. i'm driving a fiesta lx with the durashift box ... now into 23000km.
noticed a soft (but definitely there) humming sound from the front of the car at speeds 70 - 90km/h. sound is gone at lower speeds.

wondering if anyone else has the same problem. thanx in advance!

Re: gearbox whine?

Could be a wheel-bearing, to diagnose the vehicle needs to be off the ground, in neutral spin one wheel with a hand on the strut, any roughness felt just on one strut will indicate wheel-bearing failure.
