Good morning peeps
This weekend I sold my impreza and picked up a really nice evo7 of my friend at a very good price because of this whinning noise,
Now I'm keen to track down this fault and get it fixed asap, the car isn't being used atm due to the whine.
The car has 60k on it, had a box overhaul in the past and has an uprated clutch and flywheel of some sort fitted new in the past 6months.
The whine is loud and starts from around 40mph its really loud. If you put your foot down its the same but when you shut of it sounds metallic and like something is loose. The acd lights are all up also but I've checked the pump is working and is.
Any suggestions?
Thanks sorry for all the questions totally new to the Evo scene
Regards benji

Input or output bearings on the gearbox. Have you dropped the gearbox oil, to check for any swarf? Do the same for the rest of the drivetrain too.

Deffo front area, and was the same I'd say hard to say only driven the car once for around 15miles return home, 30mph wasn't much noise over 40 was Loud so stayed at low speed. Going to book it in for box and diff oil change see if any thing in either or if it helps etc

Where's a good place in the south
spoke to the owner the box had an overhaul 2years ago using parts from another to make one good one, if a bearings failed what sort of cost am i looking at for box removed, bearings replaced and refit,?

Iv got the same symptoms on my evo 8....whines mainly in 4th and 5th low-ish speeds, but get a metalic sound when letting go of the throttle or just hovering on it.....looked on youtube at evo 8 transfer box death whine :( so i assumed that was it. Might take it to a specialist for a second opinion, anyone know a good specialist in north west england?
