Default loud rumbling noise at speed

Hey guys I'm new to the forum and hoping you can help I am quite an active member on 350z-UK so any answers would be greatly appreciated.

My partners 307 2.0 hdi 90 has been making a sort of loud rumbling noise while driving at speed, when I press the clutch and coast it does not alter any of the noise.

The noise has been getting quite bad lately and I have jacked the car up over a pit in work and can hear the noise but as everything is so metallic I can't point my finger to precisely where from. As I guess I would say the n/s (left) gearbox. Now before I buy a gearbox for the car should I check any other places? If anyone could share any experiences or ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks seb

Have you lifted it and spun/hand wobbled each wheel?
Starting point for finding rumbles is generally wheel bearing checks.

Take it out of gear and coast for a short distance, if the noise is there that eliminates the gearbox.

Hey thanks for the reply, I had checked all wheel bearings and all is good, my worry is it could be the diff built inside the gearbox?

Mine had this when i bought it - there were 2 things going on:

- flat spot on a rear tyre - needed replacement
- front wheel bearing - this made a huge din inside the car, but on jacking the car and spinning the wheel independently, i couldn't hear anything (the dealer spotted it and replaced the bearing for me)

For both of these problems the sound was far more pronounced when going round a corner in one or other direction.

Sounds like my 306. We changed loads trying to get to end of it. Ended up being wheel bearing, replaced and silence.

Ahhh you've got me thinking now! The wheels have no play at all in them I have jacked the car up and spun it in gear over a pit and it really sounded like it was coming from the gearbox but with it being a loud diesel I couldn't put my money on it. Maybe I'll change the bearings first
All these comments are greatly appreciated guys l. Also if and when I do change the box does anybody know if I need to drop the subframe? Thanks again

Does it have an intermediate bearing on the RH drive shaft? i had to replace one once on a 306 as it made the same sound as a wheel bearing, but because of its location the sound appeared to come from the left side.

I am not convinced its the gearbox, i had to change the box on my abused project car, the noise sounded like metal scraping together rather than a rumbling sound, pressing the clutch pedal made it go away.

Check your tyres for flat spots and swap front to rear to see if that helps.

Lastly drain the gear oil and check it, on my shagged gearbox there were excessive amounts of metal shards in it.
