Need help diagnosing sound from tranny

I have been noticing a sound in first and second gear, it happens when I am starting to disengage the clutch and start pressing the gas. The sound is a winding sound very similar to what some manual cars sound like when you put it in reverse. It also seems to be more noticeable when I'm shifting into first or second while turning and sounds louder at lower speeds/rpm. Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this sound? Would low or old tranny fluid cause this? Or could this be related to the clutch as I just had it changed out?

My advice is to take the car back to where you had the clutch work done and have the noise investigated. The noise could be just your over active imagination.

But it could be a problem with the release bearing even if it is new. A new bearing can fail at any time. If the transmission fluid was drained/changed during the clutch job the fluid could be low.

The clutch job could have been botched.

If you want to get a 2nd opinion *before* you take the car back have the car checked out, the noise listened to, by another qualified/experienced Porsche tech. Avoid mentioning that you may suspect a shop might have messed up a clutch job. You just want an honest opinion regarding the noise. Is it "normal"? If so then there you go.

But if not -- and I hope I'm wrong -- if it is not normal then at least you know.
