I started hearing a roar in the front drivers side of my car a few weeks ago, I figured it was a wheel bearing and didn't think much of it since my daily driving is max 40 mph and 10 min at a time. after about two weeks the roar got really loud.
last week I got the car up on the lift and realized that it wasn't a wheel bearing but the sound was coming from my tranny so I am thinking a tranny bearing but not sure if I can replace it or if ill have to replace whole tranny.
Here are the symptoms
-sound is speed dependent
-doesn't stop whether in gear or not
-doesn't stop whether clutch is in or not
at higher speeds their is a slight vibration in the pedals and the steering wheel
I'm hoping anybody that has some helpful info could chime in and help me out.

I guess I would check the fluid, I would find it hard to believe the trans bearings are going to hell if there is fluid in the case.
How many miles? You are sure it is not the intermediate shaft bearing?
Sorry so long on a reply time is hard to come by lately.
Thanks for all replies too.
Transmission is full of fluid. The sound only occurs when the wheels are rolling, regardless of clutch or gear position. I put the car on jackstands and put it in 3rd gear and let it spin and found where exactly the sound is coming from but I didn't take pics. It is coming from the lower driverside part of the transmission.
