Gearbox problem

Noticed the gearbox was getting a little whine in 3rd 4th and 5th gear recently and noticed the oil was due for a change so i done it all today. When i took the drain plug out though there were bearing fragments on the magnetic drain plug. Now i am assuming that this is where the whining is starting from?

Anyone any ideas if this means new box etc??

Thanks in advance

Re: Gearbox problem

Is it still whining after the change? Though debris in the oil is never a good sign. Don't think it necessarily means a new box, but will mean having said part replaced, so box has to come out which could be pricey. Depending on price though it could be more cost effective to get a replacement box.

Re: Gearbox problem

A small bit of depris is ok thats v normal but at a small amount not huge chunks bud these boxes do whine a bit especially if you were ever in a RA you can here a lot v little sound deadening so can here the gears spin but just make sure you clean the fragments from drian plug top up to max and use proper grade oil and job done
