  1. Hi, yes I did; the problem, and the solution to it, we're exactly as described by the good folks here. I took the schematic kindly provided by Devon Aygo to my local garage and they sorted it out. If you are in any way handy I suspect its an easy fix to do yourself, but if you're under warranty you may as well get them to do it.
  2. That's absolutely great. Thanks for the response guys!
  3. Hi, I'm new to the forum and have almost no mechanical knowledge, so please be gentle! I'm hoping I can benefit from the advice and experience of others here. I own a 2007 D4D 2.0 TR; only 49,000 miles and full service history. It was last serviced about 4,000 miles ago It's developed a noise which is difficult to describe, but I'll do my best....... When pressing the throttle to increase the revs, I get what can best be described as a "hum", at between about 1,400 and 1,600 revs. This stops when you get beyond this range, but returns briefly when you take your foot off the throttle, including when changing gear. The noise occurs both when the vehicle is in neutral and in gear. There are no EMS or other warning lights visible on the dash. The sound is coming from the airbox area of the engine compartment. I took it in to my local garage to have it checked over. The exhaust is fine. They found that when they removed the air filter the noise was much lees audible, so concluded that something, somewhere is resonating at a certain frequency with the airbox with the air filter in place. They detected no reduction in performance and can find no obvious fault. They suggested I try the web to see if it's something any other users have experience of or ideas as to the cause. Any help anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ian
