Coming back from town today, i pulled out to overtake a camper van, as i accelerated i suddenly got a whine from the offside front. Everytime i accelerated the whine was there. After 2 to 3 min it stopped. Anyone else had this ?

Do you think it was coming from he wheel or engine. The turbo can make a fairly loud whine when it kicks in. But not in a bad way.

Im sure they will say thats normal and to be honest it probably is unless its excessively loud but they do like most TDis make a fair bit of noise under acceleration.

Trip to the dealer this morning. Turns out a pipe had come off the turbo unit. Fixed in ten mins.
Then after i came out the dealers what do i get ? yellow DPF. 20 miles down the bypass and its clear.
Still only getting 22MPG.
