Transmission noise

Did anyone get resolution to the grinding noise issue?

It is difficult to recreate, so dealer has dismissed my issue as no issue or normal shuddering.

I can recreate the grinding regularly now and it sounds like the video above.

On a slight incline, decelerate from 40 mph to 30 mph, then accelerate slowly. there is load on the transmission from a slight incline and a grinding noise happens when the car tries to shift from a lower gear to higher.

Disturbing grinding as it sounds like damage is being done. It very occasionally occurs as well on left turns when transmission is under load accelerating.

If there is any fix, please advise.

Thx
