get some sort of silicone spray or wd40 and spray it onto the drive belt. if the sound stops then thats what you need to replace

 

I know nothing about this sort of thing, but isn't spraying lubricant on a drive belt going to make it slip?

Had three heads under the bonnet at the weekend and we all think the sound is coming from the drive belt area (right hand side of engine), rather than where we believe the turbo is located (rear of main engine body). It's got 92k on the clock and the Hayne's manual suggests the drive belt be replaced at the 100k service.

I've attached an image (not my engine, but appears to be same layout) which marks where we think the sound is coming from (roughly).

Check all the hoses, more likely that you have a small split in one of the rubber hoses

 

I'll see what I can find, although the sound is noticeably different to the sound I'd normally associate with a split hose. The ones I've had go in the past have tended to make more of a whooshing sound. I'd love it to be just a hose though.

:)

Thanks for the assist.

normally, the whistle is the turbo itself, brother has the same issue on his Honda, doesnt run any different, no loss of power or anything, prepared to live with it till we have time to remove and strip/clean it...

beyond that, have never actually looked into what causes a whistle...its possible it can be caused by a split, but more inclined to believe it will have something to do with the turbo bearing or vanes

 

I wouldn't even attempt that myself (I'm a total novice), but would it be a big job for a garage and is it the kind of thing you'd want to trust to a dealer? I assume living with it wouldn't result in further problems?

The sound kicking in around 2k revs makes me think it's related to the turbo. When you refer to it as whistling, are we talking about a hole or tear in piping or something else?

thanks for the feedback
