    Identify that Whine?

    For the last couple of week the car (S3) has developed an intermittent whine from what sounds like the back left hand side of the car.
    • The whine is only present at speeds above 40mph, and gets louder the faster I go - This happens the majority of the time.
    • Some of the time the whine is only audible (40mph+) when I slightly depress the throttle - and will disappear again with my foot off the accelerator.
    • The minority of the time can't here a thing.
    • When it's whining, weaving side to side makes no difference to the sound.
    • Swapping the tyres front to back has made no difference.

    I don't need a stereo anymore as I'm driving around with the volume on mute listening out for this fecking noise to see if its getting worse.

    My thoughts were:

    1. Driveshaft
    2. wheel bearings
    3. sticking caliper - but I've got no vibration through the pedal.
    4. Please don't let it be the Diff!

    Any ideas guys?

    i also have this, but can only hear between around 55-67 mph and its coming from front passenger side.

    But i have a bolt missing from that wheel and i think the bearing have screwed up tbh. lol.
