    Hi all,

    Bit of advice needed please...

    I have recently noticed a whistling noise - noticable when going over 70mph, however you can sometimes hear it when accelerating whatever the speed.... it sounds like it is coming from the bonnet

    I thought it may have been down to the recent clifford alarm I got fitted i.e air coming through the bonnet and blowing into the siren, but thats just an inklin!!

    Any ideas????

    :unsure:
