Possibly a leak in the turbo plumbing??:)
That's what I was thinking but the guys at the garage have checked the all the air intake ,turbo and exhaust and say it checks out I was wondering if the egr valve mite make that sound if it was not fully closing/opening as the car seems a bit down on power when pulling away

Personaly I have never heard of an EGR valve causing a whistle but that doen't mean it couldn't happen.

I take it the inlet manifold has been checked for cracks or failed gasket - both known problems on the 2.2 Dci engine - either of which will cause lack of power.

When the gasket fails one of the symptoms is over-pressurisation of the crankcase.:)

Hi, I had the exact same noise

Put my hand over end of exhaust briefly and head a hissing from exhaust and guess what there was a whole couldnt be traced so swapped the middle and rear sections cost me £65 for the pair and paid to have them fitted and now the noise has dissapeared.

Runs like new

Hope this helps someone
