here's one for you guru's =)

today noticed under heavy acceleration there seems to be a light squeaking grinding sound. The only way I can describe it is it sound like a turbo charged car spooling up lol. It does sound nice =S but obviously it worries me as it shouldn't do that!

When the car is not in motion and you hold the revs the sound is not there.

So I put it down to the pads rubbing on the discs when I accelerate…but saying that, I never get this sound during braking.

so could it be this?

or it may simply be the whine that many TF'ers get?? Can't quite put our fingers on exactly what it is but it sounds like it comes from the top of the engine.

If the sound is a little like a super charger whine then there shouldn't be anything to worry about. Quite a few TF's have this noise although most never notice it, just get a new exhaust to mask the noise! ;)

My F does this too - it's annoying isn't it!! On mine I can only hear it with the roof or window down, and it only does it over 4k revs. Up to 4k it is fine, but as soon as you go over it starts whistling - although I would definitely describe mine as more of a whistle than a squeal...

Have had it looked at and diagnosed as air escaping from the exhaust system under pressure, but they were unable to pinpoint where... anyone got any ideas?

Cheers
Tom

Mine does it and I hate it! I wish it would go away! The thing is you can only make it go away by doing lots of miles keeping the revs low. And I just don't do that. :indiff:
