Re: Scenic whistling Brakes, HELP PLEASE!!!!!

Check the condition of your brake discs.

I had the same problem after I bought my scenic (02) and it had been off the road for a while so the rear discs were a bit rusty and pitted. I got the whistling at speeds between 5MPH and 40MPH and as you say, it disappeared when I braked. It stopped occasionally but reappeared again at times. When I did the last service, I changed the pads and discs as they were both worn and the problem vanished.

I understand, it can happen of either front or rear.

hope this helps
