SOURCE: when window is down, i get a high pitched noise in the cabin of the car

This is got to be the best one I've ever tackled! Got a few questions, does changing the position of the window change anything? It could be the door seal on another door or window that in inducting a third vent and causing it. It could very well be something in your vents, got children? Try changing positions of vents or get someone else to drive while you play detective. Almost be willing to bet that if you get someone else to drive while you hunt it , it want whistle. Technically speaking Air has to pass through a certain size orifice or be bent to a certain angle and pass faster at one area than it is in the other areas, if that makes any sense. It didn't to me when I read it. Sorry I can't be of more help but look at the good side, it'll keep you awake while you're driving!Not much help on this one~Gillight

Sounds like air is shooting out when accelerating. Could this be an exhaust leak? Plugs, coils, hoses seem fine. Noise is coming from passenger side under engine sounds like.

High pitch noise under hood not belt

It could be the IAC (idle air control) valve that is mounted on the throttle body. There was an update for these as some of them made a very loud whistling sound when they got a little older.

Sounds like too much of a coincidence to me. They either messed something up or didn't do what they were supposed to do when rotating tires. Talk to the service manager, not the service writer. If the service manager won't take care of it, insist on talking to his boss. Climb up the chain of command until you get the car fixed,at their expense. It wasn't broken when you took it to them. It shouldn't be broken when you get it back.
