A damaged torque converter will generally whine before it gives up completely. A check of the fluid level (idling in park) can tell you the story as well. It should be bright red if in good condition. Anything like dark brown to black usually points to a lack of maintenance or a severe problem from too much heat/slipping in the transmission. Also there will most likely be very fine metal shavings on the dipstick itself.

Metal grinding noise from gearbox

Pull the gear box drain plug and check for heavy metal stuck to the magnet. I suspect that the clutch in-put shaft bearing has failed. If so you will have to have the gear box rebuilt as the metal will have affected the other bearings

How to remove transmission , how to replace reverse gear?

Are you sure that it is gone? make sure the all the bushing on the transmission are good it maybe that it is not able to go all the way in gear. If you do need to take it out get a good manual "Bentley" are the best it will show you the inside of the transmission too. Haynes are also good but not for working on the transmission it self
