My Grand Scenic 2 sounds like an airplane!

Hi guys

I was hoping someone could advise me.

Our 2004 Renault Grand Scenic sounds like an airplane while its driving.

I have read through the forums and it has the startup noise which would appear to be that mentioned in the forums about a "dephaser" - the noise disappears after a few seconds and the car will idle silently. We mentioned it to our mechanic a couple of years ago and said it was an expensive fix but that if we could live with it it wouldnt really affect the car too much.

However when we hit 40 mph onwards we get a noise like there is a hole in the exhaust - we got new tyres last week and had the exhaust checked and the garage said the exhaust was fine.

If we wind down the windows while driving it doesnt appear to be too loud outside but in the cabin its like a ships foghorn

Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks in advance
