XTrail 2006 ST-S 178000 km - whirring noise from 3rd and 4th.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for having me! This forum is an amazing resource for me as I have just purchased a used 2006 xtrail with 178000 on the clock.

I have an issue that I would like to ask about. There is a humming noise coming from what sounds like the front left of the car. The sound only comes on when I'm decelerating in 4th or 3rd gear. The sound is similar to road noise although it stays the same pitch all the time and it disappears when I press the clutch in. FYI I know it did not go in for the 160000 km service which I plan to do in the next couple of months when I can afford.

-whirring/humming noise from front of car (similar sound to road noise)
-only happens in 3rd and 4th when decelerating and above approx 2000rpm at faster speeds (above 40kph)
-sound stays the same pitch
-sounds dissapears when clutch is pressed
-sound does not change with movement or turning.

Is this a normal noise to be hearing? Gearbox? Clutch?

Thanks a heap!
