500L manual gearbox whining?

Hi all!


I have 500L with 1.4 litre engine and manual gearbox, driven 20000 km. I noticed that there is small whining when driving 3rd gear between 1500 and 2500 rpm. Is that normal for Fiat 500L gearbox or is there something wrong example in bearings? How warranty works with Fiat? Are they repairing boxes if whining is only slight?

I don't think a "whining" noise is normal on any car. I would suggest you take the car to your local Fiat franchised dealer.

Any work needed should be covered under the warranty.
