I have a 2002 VW Turbo Beetle. It makes a whistling sound which is totally random: it doesn't matter if I brake or speed up, it doesn't matter what speed I go with. Noise might come and go in a few seconds or stay constant for minutes, or stop and then start minutes later again. Sometimes it even continues for 10-20 more seconds even after engine is stopped. So far the mechanic replaced the brake booster (which eliminated the noise for about a month and then it was back!), As well as some valves (this didn't fix the issue). Finally I took it to the dealer but they didn't have enough time to fully diagnose it. In the limited time they had, they said the noise seems to be coming from under the steering wheel and could be something about the wires there. I've been searching online for a solution and the closest I've come to is "bushing on speedometer is dry and needs lube" on fixya. Com Any help in solving this mystery would be appreciated!
