Gear box whine


Recommended Posts

Following or rather during my over the mountains trip to Melbourne (as detailed in trips) I've developed a high pitched gear whine which is predominant in 4th and 5th but also noticeable in the lower gears when climbing steep rocky dirt roads -- of which we drive over 500 kilometers.

I've noticed that the whine seems to almost completely vanish when I power off.

Any ideas as to what I should look for ?

Copy that, I've got to do a full service in the next day or so as the 10,000 kilometer mark came up while we were away, I'll remove the transfer box cover plate and end cover and have a squizz to see if I can see any problems
