Since a few days I noticed a sound coming from the right front side of my sirion (m300). It gets louder when taking a corner (sounds a bit like: “Duga Duga Duga” and when driving straight you can also hear it faintly. I jacked up the car yesterday and the sound seems to come from the gearbox. I wish I could upload a video I took of it but i don’t exactly know how to upload. When I put the car in gear you could hear a “klunk” coming from around the driveshaft near the gearbox. When I put the gearbox in neutral you could hear the sound when the driveshaft was engaging (there is always some play on the shafts). I also noticed that when I start driving in first gear and when changing to second gear you could hear a “klunk” when engaging the clutch. That klunk stops when you drive some miles.
I know my story doesn’t really make sense. And I know its difficult to decide what I could be over the internet but i was hoping that someone could tell me what I could check to determine if it is the driveshaft, gearbox or something else. I already checked the wheel bearings and they don’t seem to make any noise and the noise seems to be coming from the gearbox.
Any ideas? And could someone explain how I can upload a video of the sound?
Thanks in advance!
