Question about 2009 Volkswagen Eos

1 Answer

High pitched whine to the right front passenger side that appears to increase with acceleration

I just picked my preowned 2009 VW EOS hard top convertible up from the dealership because I had to have the clutch replaced. I noticed that as I accelerated I could hear a new noise...it sounds like a high pitched--tightly wound fan is running secondary to the motor. I did take it back to the dealership and the mechanic drove it with me. He could hear it but could only guess that it might be an early right front wheel barring going out? I'm just not feeling convinced.

    DJ,would you change your opinion if I told you that while driving down a straight road I jerked the wheel right and left and the sound did not change with either direction?

It is a wheel bearing, no doubt.
the wheel bearing is pressed in so if you do the job yourself you will need to take the hub somewhere to have the new bearing pressed in, but 100% the bearing.

SOURCE: Creaking sound from front passenger side of VW Polo 2003

the most common problem is the anti roll bar .where the bushes clamp around the bar there is a piece of plastic that the bush clamps around,the plastic breaks and can fall out .or the bushes that you describe are also common as a cause of noise or broken front springs .it will be one of them for sure.cheers

I think it is the cabin/ pollen filter. The noise is louder on normal AC operation cos thats when the air is being pulled in through the filter and the sound decreases with recirculate because the filter only functions for outside air.
Need to use a credit card or similar to seperate and move the upper dash centre piece towards windscreen, it clips off. Then open the 3 x torx screws and lift the dash on the passenger side. then remove the plastic cover (oddly shaped) it has about 7 screws, then twist and remove, it requires some real effort, then pollen filter is visible. replace filter and voila! it would make your AC perform like a new car again!!
Hope it helps, Yusuf Johannesburg-South Africa yusuf.ginnah@poynting.co.za

2003 Mercury mountaineer high pitch whining sounds like front passengers side- just started today - worse when you accelerate - husband thinks it might be idler pulley bearing??


If it is the idler pulley for the accessory belt, it would make the sound at all times the engine is running, not just under acceleration. I would look to the wheel bearing or the brakes on that corner of the vehicle.

I have an EOS VW 2009 and it had 5 window switches in the driver side door to the front windows and back windows and a switch to push all four windows down/up at the same time. But right now my passenger...


Hi Kimberli,

I suspect that since all windows can be powered up and down, you have issues with I believe 2 specific switches you mentioned that have problems - as a result of possible rain water, melting snow / ice or spillage of beverages. You might be able to clean them up - or replace the ones that are "flaky"

Good luck!

How to troubleshoot a high pitched whine in the right fron side of my Nissan Maxima 2004


Could be one of the belts slipping or worn out. Might even be the water pump bearing. Does the whine increase/decrease as you rev? Whine louder if you suddenly accelerate?

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

Whining sound and lost acceleration. Sounds like noise coming from pully? Whining increases when pressing the gas.


The lost acceleration is of major concern. Maybe you have lost your water pump. It would work great for a few miles when you start out and then gradually heat up and loose performance. The fluid would eventually boil over? Maybe a bearing on the camshaft is expressing it's discontent and causing extra load for the engine to overcome. Try to determine where the noise is coming from.
The serpentine belt connects the alternator, water pump, power steering, front timing pulley, fan, and front timing pulley. All these components generate a parasitic load on your engine. If the engine has to work harder because of increased load it could be any of these components. I'd definitely check the water pump listening for noise while running. Look for obvious things related to the belt and its' components.
Check the serpentine belt for wear. May indicate pulley misalignment or wear. There exists two idler pulleys that have small bearings that wear out and squealing noises. Check those for wobble with the tension off the belt. They are pretty cheap so replace them if any concern at all.
Power steering pumps cavitate and make a high pitch gear whining sound if fluids are low or gears warn of. Check the fluid and top off to the correct level.
Best wishes,
TF
