I hear something similar in my car...mostly in cold weather.  It is erratic
in nature, except that it appears to be gear-dependent--i.e. I'll hear it
in 1, 3 or 5 on one morning, 2 or 4 on other mornings.  I've also been told
it is common with these trannies (016) but I never heard anything like this
in my 4kcsq.  Been like this since I got this car 8 yrs, 80k miles ago.

'fraid I can't offer much more.
