    Default strange noise

    hi all, i have a 06 2.2sri direct and have a strange noise that seems to be coming from front nearside somewhere. it's only there when i pull away and seems to get faster as i speed up then disappears. it sounds similar to the sound of a car reversing!!!!
    i have got it booked in to get it sorted tomorrow but even the mechanic was a bit confused after hearing it. has anyone else experienced this or know what is causing it? i think it may be a air con pulley or similar

    cheers mate. nothing appears to be catching/rubbing. it sound like something winding up!
    could even be a drive shaft issue...i guess i'll have to wait
    it's a warranty issue anyway so they will be paying anyway

    driveshafts i would have thought would continue and not stop....

    warranty.... hope the vx ones better than most as driveshafts treated as wear and tear for citoren and peugeot now!! unless noted at pre delivery inspection!

    good luck!
