Whining Noise when in1st geear


In Third Gear
hello all,

I've been an avid reader of the posts on this forum and they've helped me greatly when I've been pottering around with my 1989 110 SW. However, in the past few days I've been stumped by a 'whining' noise that happens when I pull away in 1st gear, 2 thro' 4 are all ok when driving and gear selection is no problem, 5th gear is ok but when I ease of the accelerator the same tone whine is there but not as bad as when pulling away.

I've trawled through the site and whilst there are lots of mentions of various noises on the site none seem to have the same symptoms as mine. I've exhausted my very limited mechanical know how and the haynes manual so anyone with any ideas / help I'd be extremely grateful.
