A whine started about 2-3 months ago but has got louder just recently. Now when it occurs it is very annoying, hence this post.
It is a single note noise, and doesn't change pitch or loudness with speed. The sound generally starts at a low volume but also can start at a high volume and stay constant. It usually starts at about 5 mph, stops if you touch the brakes and gets quieter if you turn the steering more than 1/4 lock.
I have been to a main dealer who suggested looking at the tyres. I personally don't think they are at fault, as the noise would change pitch and volume with increased speed. Has anyone come across this problem before, if so please help.
