Help! Whistling Sound?
 
Hi there,

For the past month now I've been getting a strange whistling/squealing sound from the interior of my car. The whistling/squealing noise sounds like it is coming from my steering wheel area. Sometimes, when I turn on my car, the strange whistling/squealing sounds comes on, and sometimes while I'm driving, the whistling/squealing sound comes on. It weird. I tried to fix it by replacing all of my tensioners, pulleys and belts but, the whistling/squealing sound still occurs. Could it be the Power Steering Pump? If anyone could give me advice or can help me out, that will be awesome. Thanks in advance.

Sure its not behind the dash? I had a air con fan on a E36 did that once. I think a leaf found its way in there. Fiddled with the knobs a bit and went away. Having said that I also had a mouse behind my dash once. Didn't squeak but started to stink after a while!!!!

Hey Solidjake, it does sound similar to that noise in the video. I will replace the ECU Fan and let you know if that fixed the problem. Thanks
