Hi there,

Is this slightly high pitched whining sound normal on idle and when driving, its there sometimes and sometimes it isn't but it's like this all the time now for the past few days?

Has your car got a manual gearbox?
In this months Car Magazine: "Like other manual RS's we've previously tested , there are occasional faint whining noises audible from the transmission, although we haven't experienced any issues with it's operation beyond the sound."

No, I've got the EDC gearbox. Today it's stopped, it started 2 days ago when I did a small pull in Sport mode. Other than the faint whine which is gone for now, everything works perfectly.

Hello,

I have the same issue in my car,
Just bought it last month, and i can here the same high pitch whining noise, specially from the left side of the vehicle near the rear Tyer.

I also met another guy have the same car and the same noise and he was upset.

The noise is there on all speeds, but you can here very clear when the vehicle is idle.

Iam driving the new 2019 Megane RS lux chassis with EDC gearbox.

Iam taking my car to the dealer to check on it.

Also We need an answer from Renault sport quality assurance team. I hope someone from the team will read this message.

Hey Dardas,

Did the Dealer provide any feedback? I've been hearing that this whine is normal.

Cheers,

Thanks for sharing all this information. I love Renault cars but I also had a writing project on them for https://samedayessays.net/, so I knew I can count on this forum to gather some good information! Big Smile
