Strange wind Noise

Recommended Posts

I have just changed my 62 plate IQ for a 64 plate model. I have noticed something that was not present in the older car. Above 50mph  there is a rushing of air noise.

This disappears if I push the recirculation button on the heating controls. It is very annoying and did not happen on the older car. I know its a strange one. Does anyone have thoughts on what this could be or have experienced the same problem?

Excessively dirty or blocked cabin filter?

Is this the filter situated under the centre dash accessed from on the right of the passenger footwell.

If so fitted a new filter a few weeks ago ????

Yes that the pollen filter.

If you did fit a new filter double check the cover is properly clipped into place. They can be tricky to get seated properly.

Craig Thanks, I will check it.

The wind noise seems to come from behind me. But I am not sure.

 Are there air exit vents at the rear?

Yes, there is. They are behind the bumper and I think you can see them if you remove the trim over the lip of the boot closure kind of behind where the storage tray fits. 

They are there really for letting the air out the car quickly during air bag deployment but they would certainly be worth checking. 

Don't suppose the boot seal is damaged or misplaced is it?
