At first it is a is a sharp rattling noise only audible in 1st and 2nd gear, you can hear the bearing bouncing around at around 2200 RPM. But after it's warmed up to normal operating temperatures it's just a loud whirring noise that is louder than the engine noise while I am driving in every gear. It is even audible while I am in reverse.
Yes my car is a manual. The only reason I haven't traded it in is because I bought the car to be a daily reliable car as it was new and took it on some rod trips. I have 66,000 miles on a 2014 I bought it February. The resale value of this thing would be just garbage. I am entertaining the idea of getting rid of it but I am in school right now and can't have any gaps with not having a vehicle.
I also have the entire list of parts and everything they did from the initial work and while it is still under warranty they never really fixed the issue.
