    Toureg se gearbox duidelik baie sterker. Hoe lyk die manual Amarok sin?

    Marius, where do you find this stuff. Who knew my old donkey 90Kw was a 16valver? Practically a GTI!

    Thanks so much for posting.

    Cheers

    Usually reverse gears are spur cut and make a lot more noise than forward gears. Whistle I am not too sure of. If they say it is normal,then they should be able to show you another one that does the same thing?

    Its an auto. The same gears are used througout, just different clutch packs employed. It may whine a bit from the rear diff but a loud whine from an auto while reversing doesn't seem right to me. I could be wrong.

    I will have a look. 6 or 7 speed?

    I will look into the reverse details of the auto rok as well.

    To be fair, I don't think it's the gears. It's more of a whistling noise.
