i have tinnitis so i cant hear it. but management assures me there is a high pitched ringing noise occassionally in the rodeo, 06 turbo diesel automatic. i hear ringing noise all the time so i just shrug and look innocent. she assures me that she can hear it. anyone got any suggestions? wife has very acute hearing, can hear a stubbie open from about 50 metres. i am as deaf as a post. cheers appreciate any feedback.

Do you have a safari snorkel?
I,ve had a whistle that has driven my wife nuts too and after taping up every gap,hole ,crevice etc, etc I finally isolated it to the four slits in the snorkel head.
A little bit of black silicon in the grooves and no more whistle.
Now I have a happy wife and that makes a happy life........ Just as well too as we are just about off for 8 months up the centre and down the West coast.
Good luck finding it..
Regards

thanks for the reply, but no i dont have a snorkel, would it help if i put a bit of silicon in her ears? we have had a vynl canopy put on it. could that be the source? i'll get her to run along the highway behind it to see if she can hear it? would that be a goer? LOL

Those 4 slits are to let out wind driven rain

Ah the joys of tinnitus i know were you're coming from there.
All i can suggest is to turn up the radio.
So she can't here it,LOL
And genrerally any thing major will have a lower pitch rumble.
which will be audible to you.

Have a look at the seal inside of front wheel you may need to pull it all apart including breaks and smear a little grease on dust seal

not being condescending, but does she know what the turbo sounds like?
