thanks TimFitz, neutral with the clutch out is fine for this test , if it's in say 1st gear then the sound I'm hearing wouldn't be isolated --- also if the windows are open with alot of outside noise it's hard to zone in on this sound , and it only takes maybe 5-10 seconds coasting on a downgrade to hear it , and again it's sort of like a down-shift sound but much quieter .

thanks again and that's good info wrt front wheel drive and explains why we don't hear that sound with our MT Jetta in neutral on a downgrade .
