Hi..there..

Can you describe if possible what the noise sounds like?

Does it get louder as you increase speed?

How many miles on the car?

Ok...

Assuming you dont have leaking exhaust - If the noise changes in pitch or alters when you depress the clutch pedal..then it likely going by what your describing an issue with the gearbox or the clutch assembly or release bearing itself..its difficulty to guage these things over the net..in which case the best idea would be to get the car up on lift and basically run the car through its gears..whilst someone under the car listens to the gearbox to see if the noise is audiable outside of the car...having said that its not unusal at all to see problems with the gearboxes in these cars, transmission / diff bearings..it might be worth at least getting the gearbox oil drained out and inspected as this could give an insight as to if the gearbox internally is wearing by the checking the drained oil for mettalic filings,swarf...so well worth checking...but if a new/secondhand prefered is installed then it makes sense to the clutch at the same time..hope this helps
