Hi there

Thanks for using Just answer.

What you have is an issue with either your input bearing or drive shaft inside your gearbox.

It will need to be opened and inspected to rectify prior to knowing exactly what the issue is.

The reason it does not make the noise in 4/5 gear is because thoes gears are direct drive and do not use the same path to deliver drive threw the gearbox.

I would suggest not driving the car until the problem is rectified as at this stage you have a great chance of repairing the gearbox but the more you drive more damage can occur.

This is quite a common issue with Peugeot gearboxes.

I hope this assists you with your queries
And thanks for using Just Answer
