    Hi guys, had my s3 for nearly 2yrs now and its always had a slight noise when driving slow in 1st or 2nd but recently its started making the noise in 3rd too and is starting to get annoying. anyone got any experience with this. i have a new clutch in and she sounds fine once i get to 4th, its worst in 3rd when i take my foot of the accelerator. sounds like a grinding noise kinda???
    Any info would be great

    Ive had her checked over recently and they didnt find anything wrong but the heatshield might have been over looked. have you ever noticed that kinda sound before.

    Where is the noise from?

    My guess would be box related due to it being gear specific. A few members on here have had to have parts replaced recently due to 'boxes breaking

    ye i was hoping it wasnt the gearbox. its from the front somehwere and slightly to the left side id say, maybe if i put her in gear up on a ramp might be able to trace it. she does have that trade make rough change between 1st and 2nd but othewise seems ok apart from the sound. doesnt make the noise when accelerating either. only when stead in gear or slowing in gear
