I have recently bought a 57 plate Ceed 1.6 LS (deisel). After a few it developed an annoying whistle in 1st & 2nd gear.It sounds asthough thereis a police car about 200yds behind you. I have read on your forum that it could be a problem with the turbo, are there any other things that might cause this noise?

A certain amount of turbo whistle is normal when the car is under load. Do you hear it above the sterio? If so what volume setting do you use, because I cant hear any whistle in 1.6CRDi when I am in the car, but i tend to have the music on a bit loud.


If you are worried, take it back to your retailer and ask the service department to check it out.

The turbo on my 07 ceed with 30k miles started to whistle.it was replaced under warranty ,no hassle. Whistling is usually a sign of early turbo problems, if it fails you will certainly know it will sound like all the big-ends have failed all at once.
Take it back to the dealer.
