How do I silence or quieten the reverse noise ?


reverse gear is what is called a spur cut gear and because of that it generally is noisier that the other gears
it runs on it's own idler shaft and there most probably will be a bearing problem that is allowing the mesh of the gears to alter and that will make the reverse noise louder than normal
so it is either a bearing on the way out or because of the way the gears are cut , a tooth could be chipped or partially broken off (slashing reverse inadvertently when selecting from 5th back to 4th)
the fix will be a box overhaul of the bearing or gears

1998 land rover discovery transmission makes loud banging noise when shifting from pari to drive?


Tons of possibilities here (transmission, differential, motor mounts, transmission mounts....), so I'll ask some debug questions to help narrow it down. Does it make the noise when shifting into reverse? Also, does it make the noise only when shifting from park, or also when shifting from neutral (into drive or into reverse)? Did the noise start as an occasional, softer noise and get worse over time, or did it start suddenly? Does the vehicle lurch at the same time as the noise? What happens when you go from Reverse to Drive, or vice versa? Has any work been done recently (brakes, tires, alignment, suspension, transmission)?

Tcs off slp


broken motor mount, or loose.a great way to alsoalliviate the noise and apply longivity would be to lube your components/by recommendations sometimes using part oil part lube depending on the age and wear of components. guessing your at about 120 to 130 thousand miles, and need service. not tranny related in reverse. however, ubolts are notorius (UJOINTS) for making reverse noise, also a dry or sluggy internal unit can malfuntion partss. the slip fifth sounds like a driven hard and proud problem, lower your rpm at shift and baby the rest of the tranny life. the snycro bolt clip can jam with hard shift by operator, and a bent drive shaft or that of can trike noise of such. be weary of cv parts/boots/ball joints and such, however, transaxel no doubt needs lubed and serviced immediately. oh and lighten the foot up, its not an off road truck its a very delicate long lasing car with components that can not take ruts, curbs nor parking concrete stops. easy shift, or the ride ended.

For a manual transmission, this means your clutch has completely failed. The loud noise was likely not a belt, but the cluch release bearing. I'll bet this was a screeching noise that reduced or stopped when the clutch pedal was depressed.

You'll need a new replacement pressure plate, driven plate, release bearing and anything else that is found to be worn out when the the transmission is removed to do the job. A garage would need 4-6 hours labour to do this.

Loud "tire or wheel" roar on the highway


I certainly would take it back to the shop that performed the brake job and have them investigate. If it was not making the noise prior to the repair there is a good chance the noise is involved with the brakes. A possible loose brake pad, a sticking caliper(caliper pins may need to be lubed) or any number of things could be wrong.

The rubber "boot" at the firewall is chafing on the steering shaft. Spray shaft with silicone lube, then turn the steering wheel back & forth to work lube in. May require occasional re application.
