S3 Gearbox whine

I've got a 1975 S3 with whine and rumble on 1st thru 3rd, silent on
4th. Am I right in assuming the layshaft bearings have gone?

TIA

That sounds like a fair diagnosis.

depends on how much whine, though. Rumble sounds iffy, whine is normal
unless seriously loud.

Oh, the whine is loud alright. Sounds like a badly worn diff only
about twice as loud.

Re: S3 Gearbox whine

Indeed I was tempted to post the standard retort "they all do that sir" at
least mine does, whines all the time, and when it gets really stroppy jumps
out of second. I think it has to get seriosly bad before its worth tinkering
with unless you have nothing better to do or oodles to spend on it, which I
don't have at the moment :(

mine jumps out of first quite easily and third sometimes, both on over-run.
Almost certainly detent springs, I might even look into fixing it one day.
