Whistling at speed

9 posts in this topic

Travelling above 70 I get a really bad whistling from the passenger side of the car ? Any ideas what I could do to stop it ?

Audi A3 - Quattro - Sline - 170 :ffs:

Stop driving maybe....:P (joke)

Could it be wind noise, does the door fit as well as it should ?

Checked for Roger in the boot !! it is definitely wind noise but not sure if it is passing through the wing mirror ..... I have heard that the the top window seal that pushed against the window as it moves up or down can have an effect. Anyone else had issues with the wind (in terms of the fast flowing over the car and bonnet at speed type, not the hold a lighter by your arse and light it type) ???

I've had whistling like this when the seal at the top of the windscreen developed a small hole - at speed the air got blown through and whistled.

If you have your air recirculation on - turn it off.

I know you're thinking 'eh', but I get some whistling noises about 90+ but only if recirc is on, so perhaps try that if its turned on.
