Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

I would like to join TylerC in reporting another successful fix for this issue.

As of my last post, the dealership had replaced the expansion valve in the A/C system, which had no effect on the...

Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

As I expected, my results were similar to TylerC's. The A/C expansion valve was replaced, but had no effect on the problem. At that point, Chrysler's tech support people asked my service advisor if...

Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

So, I gave up on the service department of the dealership close to my house and took the GC back to the dealership where I bought it, assuming they would be more motivated to fix the issue. The tech...

Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

I met with the shop foreman of my dealer's service department yesterday afternoon. He asked if I could reproduce the noise while we were sitting in the vehicle in the parking lot. So, I revved up...

Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

So, I had my GC in for its first oil change on Tuesday and left it with the dealer all day so they could look at the A/C problem. I didn't hear anything until about 4 pm, when they called to say it...

Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

jonboverland, thanks for the info! I too have noticed that it seems to be restricted to a certain rpm range. For sure, it doesn't happen at idle, but it will occur when I'm parked and rev the engine...

Re: V6 High Pitched Sound

I just came across this thread and would like to know if the squeal was ever diagnosed/fixed. I'm having the same problem with my WK2 and I agree that it seems to be tied to the A/C. I didn't hear...

Re: Roof rack cross bar wind noise

My cross bars have locksets on both ends, so this isn't an issue for me.

Re: Roof rack cross bar wind noise

Sure enough, the folks at Mopar put the FORWARD sticker on backwards on the front cross bar. Once I got it turned around, the noise went away. In fact I'm not noticing any wind noise at all. Thanks...

Re: Roof rack cross bar wind noise

My front cross bar is definitely mounted reverse of yours. I'll try switching it around this evening and see if that helps. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Roof rack cross bar wind noise

I wonder if there's any chance the cross bars were labeled wrong at the factory? When viewed from the side, the cross bars look like an elongated teardrop. On mine, the fat end of the teardrop faces...

Re: Roof rack cross bar wind noise

I don't have a sunroof (just the base Laredo) and it's not warm enough in NC this week to have the windows down. The noise is coming straight through the roof!
