Renault Megane Scenic - Odd sound @50mph/2200rpm

1.9 rtdt scenic migrane 1998

Ok here goes,

as you are all no doubt aware this is more likely an issue caused by the dude that made my engine so oily a while back ( i found out that it was due to the apprentice placing the the used oil bowl on the engine bay then dashed off to lunch and kept it quiet upon his return , innevitabley it ended up depositing enough used oil in my engine bay to suspect a serious problem , his eventual excuse "cos we was tight for space, and erm er.............sorry. hahahahahahahah yeh im still laughing now................NOT!!)

ok either way , my frog like steed has developed a noise from the front nearside wheel engine area now , it sounds like a progressive naaaar figgadigga naaaaaar sound ? ( tone only, sorry no base line either)
starts in 3rd at around 40mph, and gets worse as i move through the gears, if im on the motorway in 5th at 50mph , its vague, hit 60 and its gone ?
and as soon as i back off the throttle it gets louder, and the noise will remain until i exit the motor way. even when it is out of gear and coasting from say 20mph come to a halt and it stops, but as soon as i hit 3rd gear again it starts to come back.

if anyone can recall the dinosaurus mini metrosus (austin metro ) it sounds like they used to , eg horrid transmission sound while traveling , but the gearbox is fine ,not sticky or vibrating, also topped up with correct splodge @ 80 w gear oil not over filled.. could it be a bearing , or a drive shaft, or something to do with the clutch seeing as its only done 1200 miles ? . and if it is a drive shaft any ideas as to the avg charge for a psngr side drive shaft,

either way i still reckon its a wickid motor.

""oooooooh look mummy" " can i poke it with this small fluffy animal that ive duck taped to a stick"
