My car came back from a service about a month ago, and as part of that they carried out a pending recall action relating to wiring around the heater unit. Guess what - silent since.

I'm taking my car in this Friday for this. We'll see what they come up with. It's been to the dealer a few times for this specific issues and so far we have added the AC weight and changed differential seals but it has not gone away.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any idea why my F30 is making this sound when I'm starting it for the first time of the day? Check the videos.It has been checked in the garage and they are saying that nothing is wrong with the car... But still sounds bad even if they had a look the the engine.

Taking my 2016 340i in next week to have them look at a whistling noise above 30 mph. The noise gets louder when I accelerate and becomes more quiet if I take my foot off the gas and coast. It sounds like a bad seal on the door or sunroof but I'll post back what they find.

Did you manage to solve the problem StannisBaratheon ?
I have the exact same problem. Wolf howl like sound appears at about 90kmh, and disappears after 130-14-kmh. But i think thats because i cant hear it, due to engine noise ( i have 2.0 diesel ). Also, howl will disappear if i release the throttle, and reappear if i press it again. If i floor it, i cant hear it.

I did full gearbox service ( ZF8 ). I suspect it is rear differential, since i dont have xdrive.

The dealer didn't figure it out and neither have I but you are describing exactly the same symptoms. I also suspect it's some bearing in the rear differential. I have used blue painters tape to cover every seam and seal on the body to determine if it's wind noise or a bad seal and it didn't make a difference. The noise also disappears when I take my foot off the throttle so it must be something in the drivetrain. Mine is an xDrive so it could also be the front diff or transfer case.

Have you changed the fluid in your rear diff yet?

Yeah, changing fluid was the first thing I have done. Oil was black. The shop says when oil in diff gets so black, it usually means that bearing or gears are damaged a bit.

And yes, in the past you could only hear it from 140-160kmh, very strange.

Thing is, I'm moving to Switzerland l, and I'm scared to drive it up there, for 1300km
