Auto gearbox whirring noise - my experience

I have read a lot on here about the auto gearbox noise - its a whirring noise when moving away but not in neutral. I thought I would share this with you.
Garage 1 - if the noise gets worse get rid of the car.
Garage 2 (Rover specialist) - changed gear oil 45 but made no difference.
Garage 3 (transmission specialist) - change bearings 430 and has stopped the noise and is running really good. They were unable to cancel the engine management warning light.
Cheers Jay

Just like to add to my previous post with the problems I have had since the correction of the noise.
Started to not engage drive or reverse unless warmed up.
I took the car back and had the filter changed (allegedly).
Whatever was done did make a difference to that, but now wont kickdown and performance isn't very good. I am going to phone the garage to see what they have to say.
Cheers Jay

is yours the one with the paddle shift? the EM-CVT?

did it make the noise all the time or only when warming up by the way?

Mine is the CVT. Noise was only on acceleration.

Apart from checking the oil level the problem is never a cheap fix, I personally would start trying to source a seconhand gearbox, try the free search on the internet were they will email you back with prices to supply and deliver, then you can decide to either have a go at fitting yourself or getting a garage to do it for you.

I normally use these people and its free www.carsparefinder.co.uk, you can get the replies either by phone, text or email which ever you want.

Yeah, same opionion as his, I'm afraid, these 'boxs are not known for durability - I've heard of failures at 40k miles which is disgraceful.

Try www.roverbreakers.com if you don't get any joy elsewhere, they were pretty helpful for me...
