Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I see you haven't been attended to, I'll see if I can help you.
If your manual trans is noisy in the first 3 gears and possibly 4th, then you have a front cluster bearing failure happening.
Unfortunately, time for a transmission rebuild before it does break parts.
Hope this helps.
Have you had a transmission shop drive the car to ascertain your concern?
I hope I was of help to you.
