Trickling noise from 65+ mph
Posted 19 September 2008 - 07:23 AM
I have a 2001 1.25 Zetec S Fiesta Ghia. When I travel at motorway speeds, I hear a trickling noise from what sounds like the passenger front footwell. I don't have a coolant leak, so the heating matrix is fine as there is no water in the footwell.
Any ideas on what it might be?

This is a strange problem and if you have no water gathering then its obviosuly not a leak into the car, are you sure it isnt wind whistling through the window or something like that?

The thing with this is that, you can hear with with the heater on or off. I'd alos like to say that the car is running fine & the heater appears to work fine. Though the engine does appear to take a while to warm up (well compared to my Celica).

Yeah I do it every weekend.
Have a look in the engine compartment, i had a weird noise from 40mph+ and it turned out to be leaves rolling around because of the draught in a small hidey hole underneath the brake servo unit. I managed to get them out using a knitting needle and since then, quiet as a mouse!

If it is an airlock, what would be the easiest way to get rid of it?

I still get this noise. It's not an airlock, so no idea what it is!
Did you check out the 'leaves' noise inside the engine compartment?
