    Default Funny noise once over 50km/hr

    Hey guys, I have a bit of an issue. Once I get up around 50km/hr there seems to be a 'whistle' that is coming from the front of the car. It does not sound like metal on metal, and the dynamics of the car have not changed. It seems to be getting worse and more constant.

    Any ideas guys?

    Justin

    It's not a wind noise of any sort? No headlight protectors fitted or loose or anything like that?

    G'day,
    does the noise change if the windows are opened or closed? Is the bonnet fully closed?
    Don't laugh, these things happen.

    That was one of the symptoms of the dying ZF 4HP20 in our 406 coupe. After the rebuild the 'whistle' went away.

    Default Canaries? Maybe

    Ok, no Canaries hehe, and no loose bonnet or headlights or any changes made. Now I have no idea about the letters and numbered things you guys are posting about either. When the windows are open, (drivers side) I can hear the noise more, but I can hear it when the windows are up and the sunroof is open. And even when everything is closed I can still hear something.

    Seems to be getting worse each time I drive.

    Should I knock it in neutral and keep the revs up or just drive, put it in neutral and leave the revs at idle?

    The letters and numbered thingies ?
    Demannu is saying that the automatic gearbox in his Peugeot 406 made the same type of noise just before it shat itself.

    Can you replace a series 1 4 speed gearbox with a series 2 6 speed without drama??

    phase II has the same problem

    90% due to bad maintenance or wrong usage

    but peugeot keeps on claiming that these autogearboxes are without maintenance, as where the manufacturer states that oil change needs to be done every 80.000km's. When using in severe conditions (always pulling a heavy trailer) it is even sooner.

    The question aims at eliminating sources of noise such as bearings, etc in the transmission itself. If the noise disappears at speed with the transmission in neutral, then the transmission is most likely at fault. If it doesn't, you're in luck, the problem is elsewhere.

    Why would you rev the engine up driving around in neutral? You can do that with the car standing still if you want to listen to the engine.

    Just a thought, I don't suppose it's the brakes squeaking slightly?

    Thanks for the clarification and will do so tomorrow. As you state 'trust nothing…Google everything' I like to make sure every detail that is suggested is clear. I do not have the 'no how' and that is why I joined the site.

    Default Fixed with a tyre change???

    Seems that the noise that I was experiencing has gone now that my tyres have been changed. The noise was that of metal on metal so I am totally confused as to how the noise could relate. Any suggestions??

    Sticky front caliper, perhaps - if they're not the Brembo type.

    I feel that this could be the answer! When I changed the front callipers I noticed uneven wear, and wear on the disc itself. This is being changed when I fly out to Cairns for the week and I won't need the car next month. I thought it had disappeared with the new tyres, but alas I heard it again this afternoon.

    When the noise is there again, drive the car and put very light pressure on the brake pedal, if the noise goes, it is connected with the brake calipers or pads that are not sitting correctly.
