    True
    some people saying it’s the gearbox
    If it was the cv joint or track rod or drive shaft the noise will always be there and it wouldn’t go away by pressing the clutch ??

    I would suggest that if the noise goes away when clutch pedal is depressed (not unhappy), it's probably either clutch or more likely gearbox.
    I had a problem with a noisy gearbox when the gearbox was cold.
    Left it with dealer overnight so that it could be started from cold net day ... noise was there.
    Bad news was main Dealer was not inclined to do anything until I involved Credit Card Company ... took them a month and a new gearbox.

    If I could find out how to attach a video, I gladly pass it on.

    Moral being: pay at least 100 on Credit Card and then C/C Company become interested.

    yes mine sounds like that too but it’s only noisy time to time whilst I’m driving it
    No noise in neutral or on idle

    Silly question but have you checked your gearbox oil level?
    Perhaps there's sufficient oil to lubricate bearings on tick over but not when cars being driven and gears are churning and throwing oil around inside box.
