1st Gear strange noise

Hi all, new here and I'd like to start off with a Hello!

Just picked up a lovely 99 SH that is very clean but has a slight problem with 1st gear. Sometimes, at around maybe 1.5k rpms in 1st gear and I'm riding the clutch a little bit, I start to hear a "grind" for about 2 seconds and it disappears as soon as I get off the clutch or increase the rpms. Happens a lot more in traffic. The "grind" is like not really a grind but sounds more like a low frequency growl coming from either the tranny, or axles.

Is this common with 5 gens? Is the tranny going out? It seems to be driving great...Next weekend I'm going to change the fluid and see if that helps. The owner told me the clutch has been changed recently, could it be that maybe the use of aftermarket clutches do this?

Re: 1st Gear strange noise

Thank you so much, I posted this problem on another problem and didn't really get help at all. My main concern is that sooner or later it will be more than just an small annoyance and turn into something big. Hopefully changing the fluid will help a little.

i would honestly try not to ride the clutch but also see how it throws when your sitting there and make sure u dont hang on the shifter after you put it into a gear when u start to go even if your not yanking on it, it can cause the throwout bearing to go sooner
