So I noticed this noise when I was reversing down my drive. Put it in Park to go check it out and and the noise stopped, tried to get it to occur again and had no luck..

Im afraid the only noisei herd was the secondary air pump in operation .. this will only happen for upto 1min from cold start though so not sure if thats the noise you are refering to .

It could be, but the car was running for around 2-3 minutes - should I be concerned that the noise is still happening after that long? Also, it seems to only appear very occasionally when a gear is selected

The air pump will only run for a max of 60 seconds from cold .. if the noise happens after that then thats not the fault / noise .

Im afraid i agree with cheshire911 .. it will need looking at as from the video i cant hear a problem and im guessing neither can anyone else .. getting a gargage to confirm there is or isnt a fault is safest i feel .

A lot of time can be wasted trying to figure this out and we don't have all the info to go at. Sometimes, a job is beyond reasonable DIY and its a trip to the indy to test drive it listening to the noise, check codes and put it up on the ramp. It could be diff, gearbox or anything else. No mention has been made of mileage. many of these cars are high mileage examples these days and my indy sees them all the time - whines, squeaks, rattles etc and he is doing so many diff and manual gearbox strip and repairs landing their owners a big bill.

Its so often a case of wear and tear as the miles are put on.

Yep, sound advice above. Thanks guys.

I'll take it over to Brookspeed next time I'm free - haven't heard the noise again since, but I'll keep an ear out and try and diagnose it a bit better in the meantime
