strange noise at 70mph+

Post by adfos » Wed Jul 08, 2015 10:40 am

I have a strange noise at 70mph
It is a high pitched noise.
not sure if it is a wind noise maybe windscreen wipers?

or a wheel bearing? seems to stop momentarily when going over a bump

i am going to take it the dealers as it is too annoying now.

just wondering if anyone knows waht it may be.

ignore the toddler whinging :)

That's wind noise, probably being caused by something small like a tiny gap or something sticking into the airflow around the car. I had a a car that would do it if the aerial on the roof was at a particular angle. I've seen talk about door seals on here, maybe a door gap needs an adjustment, or the wipers?

I think it is the wiper, though I haven't found a way to adjust it down yet apart from manually shoving it.

I have exactly the same, only at speeds around and above 70. It only happens when the wind gets up and seems to be buffeting the car. Do let me know if you solve it! I will be talking to my dealer tomorrow.

Thanks for solving a slight worry!

I heard this noise for the first time today whilst travelling down the motorway at 70ish. I was confused about what it was until I remembéred about the post on here.

Had the car a month now and that morse code sound is very annoying, it's just on the drivers door side and only on speeds above 68mph, I've started to stick pvc tape around the door seals to find out where it's coming from but so far no luck.

Check out previous posts on this matter and check the door seal reaches the indents as per photo. I think anymore than 2mm -3mm short of this indent appeared to be the problem before. If all ok then it could just be a new prob, check first, panic later.
