Think the code might be low down on front face of box but not 100%.
If the noise is worse on rougher surfaces, I can't see the issue being in the gearbox though.
Unless you have more than 1 fault of course.
While you're looking for problems, check the inner bushes on the lower arms for play.
Can sometime check with wheels on floor and trying to roll wheel back/forwards.
Its not so much noise as vibration. If it was noise it might be easier to find.
The arm bushes on the off side were changed when I did the ball joint. Easier to change the complete arm rather than pressing ball joints in and out.
fortunately I work for a major car parts supplier (hate the job but grateful for it when the car goes wrong lol) so the parts are fairly cheap
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
