Worrying Whistle
 
On occasion when I decelerate my2014 CRD with my foot of the throttle I can hear a whistling sound. It appears to be coming from the front end and stops as soon as I put my foot back on the throttle. Only happens randomly hence is difficult to duplicate for the service manger. Should I be worried?......

Turbo hose?

As Benno highlighted, Sounds like the Turbo Hose.

Mine was doing the same, but also under light acceleration and it was a split turbo hose.
Are you down on power ?

Haven't noticed a decrease in power but you have to consider I traded a Nissan patrol with the 2.8L motor for the jeep.....way more powerful than the patrol

I have also read of missing clamps on the hoses joining the turbo resonator (the black plastic bit above the radiator).

The big fat hoses running to an from that contain pressurised air from the turbo.

I should have said, rather than down on power, does the car feel lazy ?
It felt like the boost would not come on as strong as it did before, it felt like a flatspot or turbo lag.

Enforcer, do you know exactly where and what turbo hose was split on yours?

I did not see which one it was, but they told me it was the one between the turbo and intercooler

Funny you mention this. I have a similar whistle to that in exact same circumstances. But mine is 3.6 petrol.
