Hopefully i can help..


This isnt really an uncommon issue on the insignia or that gearbox in general..usually its down the bearings on these gears yours being the most common in 1st/2nd and then gradually effects the others..the end result or remedy to that is another gearbox / the gearbox refurbished,rebuilt replace bearings in gears 1 to 6 ..either way those are the options im afraid..depending on the severity of the problem/whine.and how much use your intenting to get out the car till it i wouldnt advise long journeys to be honest in that condition..then you may a get a bit of time yet..but i would advise not to leave too long..I do hope this helps
