Pleasure Graham, interesting that your roofrack is whistling. Mine is dead quiet and we have very similar racks.
Not the safest thing to do, but can someone not sit on the roofrack while you are driving to determan where the noise is coming from? Or does it only whistle at high speed?
Might be just a bolt hole or something small that tou can close up.....

Also check for a bolt hole that catches the wind :thumbup: :thumbup:

Michael and Wilkie, I will have a look if I got a bolt hole open some where, only whistles at speeds above 90km>, the whistle sound defiantly comes through the sun roof, the rack is pushing wind down onto the sun roof then the sun roof whistles, while driving if I push up on the sun roof from the inside then the whistle gets worst, maybe I should move the rack slightly back? :think:
