I have had a similar problem and found out that the noise is coming from the air vents. Close all the vents and check. If this is true then it is either the fan bearing which needs attention or the Air flow is getting blocked. If it is the fan bearing then you should also hear it when you turn the fan on. I hope this helps.

You mentioned Gearbox. I must admit I changed the gearbox on my Rover 400, (3 times) but the problem showed itself as more of a clicking noise. Rover 400 are known to have Gearbox problem.
