Strange gearbox whine/ buzzing.

  Clio 182
Hi all. Recently bought a 182 and am loving it, although, I have a slight issue regarding a ticking/ buzzing noise that sounds as if its coming from the front left area in the engine bay. It sounds almost as if someone has twanged a ruler on the edge of a table and increases with RPM of the engine. The noise only happens when the car is warm mostly in 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th gear. The noise also only happens under moderate/hard acceleration. I have no problems getting into gear though the clutch is heavy but have been told that's normal. Sorry for the long paragraph, any ideas on what it could be?
