'16 GTI PP manual at about 16,000 on the clock. It seems as though the road noise has increased substantially in the last few weeks and i'm trying to pinpoint the cause. I don't believe it to be wheel bearings or the tires (factory, recently rotated), but oddly enough my gut is telling me that it may have something to do with the front diff and/or the transmission acting noisy. Things seem to quiet down a bit if I take it out of gear while moving.
Looking for any feedback on how best to isolate/pinpoint the source of the road noise and if anyone has heard anything/had any experience with issues related to the MT or front diff that I might want to pay attention to.
