Which transmission do you have fitted the semi automatic .

When do you have this noise in all gears.

Does the noise go away when you depress the clutch or when you let the clutch out.

Looks like the output shaft bearing or most likely main drive shaft bearing .

you will have to remove the transmission and chak for play in the main shaft .
