    Whenever I go over 2200revs it makes a higher pitch noise than the engine. Sort of whirring sound maybe? My dad thinks possibly a tensioner and brothers said bearing. Sound start similar time the turbo kicks in.

    Hello to all I've got a new problem with my 9-3. Previously, the climate control had worked perfectly during all of the time that I have owned her. Then, the air con simply stopped working. I took her to local Kwik Fit for a recharge, and this cured it, nice icy air again. This only lasted...
