Gearbox problems

Problem:

Can you hear a whining noise coming from the gearbox? Does this seem to disappear when you apply the clutch? This noise is caused by the end plate bolts becoming sheared, resulting in a plate moving around and rubbing against the gears. This is a common issue on this car, which seems to be more noticeable at high speeds.

You are best to get this sorted asap, so as to avoid any further gearbox damage, which could result in high repair costs, if anything else becomes damaged.
