a wheel beraing would most lily hummm all the time. and wouldn't matter if it was in reverse or not would be the same. It's almost gotta be a tranny problem. either have it built or get another unit from a junkyard. Unless somoen else can think of somthing i'm missing.
I just thought of somthing. When you push in the clutch between first and second does it go away or quiet a little. If it does then it's deffinetly the tranny.

it really sounds like the tranny is DEAD!!! I would go find another one very quickly because it sounds like it will not last much longer

the tranny is the gearbox. you can use most of them, but somone correct me if i'm wrong but mk3 and up along with the g60 were cable shift trannies. early vw's were all rod shifted. you can change to the cable shift but it takes some mods. I would go to a junkyard and get one like the one you have. You said it's a 16v right? so just get a 16v tranny and swap it in for the other one. But you didn't answer my earlier question. Does it sound the same whne you push in the clutch or quieter?

ok,then, tranny = gearbox
this things happen to a non-english guy

sorry i didnt answer.its the same noise.it doesnt quiet if i press the clutch,because it doesnt do the noise whenn not running!only when i go forward or backwards,the noise comes to life!im thinking,maybe a engine mount.i only have one left to switch.the one in the front,the other ones are new!could the engine mount do this kind of things!?
thx a lot for the replys!!

if it quiets it's deffinetly the tranny. It won't get you killed but it can give out and leave you stranded. it you don't wanna take it apart and rebuild it you'll probably save some money by jusyt picking a used on up from a junkyard. god luck
