Gear Box Whine
« on: December 15, 2015, 02:10:28 pm »
Wondering if anyone has encountered similar on a Punto Evo Abarth.... from gear 3-6 from 20mph to excess of 70... a whining noise is noticeable that is only drowned out by acceleration. At past 70 it seem to get louder and more intense. Any suggestions what i might be?? Its under warranty still so cost inst really a issue. Cheers.

    I don't know if the evo has the m32 gearbox like the grande but it could either be the gearbox on its way out or a wheel bearing. When you pull off or change gear and apply power does the gearstick move or twitch?

    Evo has the C635 gearbox from the Giulietta rather than the M32 gearbox. My Evo has a whine from the rear wheel bearing - one replaced under warranty, the other got noisy after warranty. I hope this helps.
