noise from gear box or transfer box?

Hi got a subaru 1999 uk turbo wagon when driving getting a a rattle/tapping noise when coasting and move gear stick side to side gets louder,had it on ramp sounds like its coming from the back end of the gear box,when the car is just ticking over no noise at all going into gear perfect also,anyone got a good guess what this can be?

You can get the slightest backlash off the propshaft that more of a bit of a slight clonk say turning a corner off power then back on the power that normal that sound. Im one of these guys that if i hear the slighest noise with car id have to find it out

It could be the factory exhaust heat sheilding touching adjacent parts.

Id drain gearbox oil so and see if anything broken up inside it if that noise from inside the box and you will see metal bits pouring out with oil, you will get v small shavings alright this normal v small could try that, you could try breakers yard for box or get it reconditioned........................ if thats your problem
