noise in 5th gear & size of caliper guide pin

for the last few weeks i have being getting a sort of whirring noise in 5th gear. i was wondering if it could be the gear oil i have done about 78000 miles does it need to be change or just toped up. also i am going to change rear brake pads on the weekend i was looking at the caliper guide pins. they look like allen key bolts does anyone know the size and best tool to remove them by the way it is a laguna II 1.9 any help would be great thanks

Hi David - it's worth getting the oil level checked in the gearbox. As far as I rememember the allen key for the caliper bolts is 7mm. You'll need a fairly good quality one as they can be quite tight to get off - most decent motor factors ofr Halfords (if your lucky). They usually sell them separately as very few allen key sets have the 7 mm size included.:)
