Transmission Noise 320
I have a 320 made December, 2000 with 38k miles. It has just developed an odd rattle that sounds similar to that of a bad universal/CV joint but I’m not sure. When in Park or Neutral the sound almost disappears, even when I rev the engine up. When in Reverse or Drive the noise starts up. When stopped at idle it is noticeable but seems to reduce when the engine is rev’ed up and the parking brake on. When driving it seems less although I think I notice it still when in a tunnel or passing a wall that could reflect noise.
Thoughts on what this issue might be?
