Hi All, I have a 1979 spider that needed new front and rear seals on the transmission which, of course, also required a new clutch. After my mechanic did the repairs there was a serious whining, almost a rubbing/chafing sound coming from the transmission tunnel. It definitely did not make this sound when I took my car in to be repaired. I sent the car back to him where the transmission was again removed and the throwout bearing was checked. On putting the car back together I still get that whining sound. I feel I have have gone beyond the capabilities of my mechanic (not a specialist in Alfa's) and I am worried about driving the car.
Any ideas what it could be and should I not drive until I get a specialist to look at it?
