Noise 2016 XE SE 2/0 163

Post by visartuk » Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:12 pm

After suffering various problems, I hope I am just being paranoid. :? But the XE now seems to have a whirring noise that appears to be getting louder. I cannot be certain it has not always been there

Quite noticeable at speed over 50, does not seem to affect performance. No warning lights, just seems loud.

Recording (mp3) - [url][/url]

Went in for the H149 and nothing was said when they road tested.

That's quite a long sound clip - at what time can you hear it?

Yes sorry about the length of the clip,

It is pretty much there each time I accelerate, hard to describe, but closest I can think of is an Easyjet flight in turbulance! Travelling at say 50, it is quite constant and even a little vibration with the noise.

People around me say, could be a turbo issue, wheel bearing, differential

Couldn't hear a whine. Are you sure that's a recording of a Jag and not a 1989 Ford Transit... :mrgreen:

My mates 1970 Hillman Hunter sounds better and I think if my car sounded like that it would be gone.
