Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

This problem you have described is constant with a faulty brake power booster, this is vacuum operated and the noise you hear is vacuum leaking from the unit, vacuum is supplied via the inlet manifold on petrol engines and a dedicated vacuum pump if diesel, have the brake booster inspected for a fault. I would have this done ASAP.
