    Default hope you guys can help......

    i know there are some knowledgeable guys on here who can help, so here goes, but its not a a veccy problem.....
    ive got a octavia vrs diesel, 2 and half years old, just done 60k, its just started to make a high pitched whistling sound between about 1200 and 2200 revs while accelerating. you can hear it with the radio off, but with the radio on at normal sound level, you can only just hear the whistling noise, if you were a passenger, you would not notice the sound unless I pointed it out to you, my gut instinct tells me its not too serious hopefully, maybe a turbo pipe come off some where???? i donít think its turbo bearings because thatís a whining sound as opposed to a whistling sound. Also theres no loss of power, drives perfect, its just the slight whistling noise What do you guys think?? Just took a extended warranty out today as itís just done 60k, hope i donít have to use it......

    Think you've answered your own question i would check for leaks on boost pipes it might be you have a very small hole,small enough to make a whistling noise but not enough to effect boost.
    Then again you have warranty why dont you just ask the garage to have a quick look
