Grinding noise in 5th at 70mph (80kmph) - 2.4 Puma

Car drives normally, only in 5th when going over 2000rpm the grinding noise appears and I dare not go over 70mph (80kmph). In 6th all is normal again and I can go well over (tried 80mph / 95kmph but did not wanna go further fearing all hell could brake loose).

I first thought it was a poulie, but now I'm not sure anymore as in 6th the problem went away.
PS in the lower gears, going well over 2000rmp is no poblem.

It's going in to the dealers tomorrow, but wanted to know beforehand what it could be.

(2011 2.4 Puma - 61000miles/97500kms)

So is it 70 mph or 80 km/h? Those are not close to the same speed?

Sound like a problem with the gearbox. You are not going to find a lot of people with Puma experience here. you are better off asking at a UK or Australia forum.
