Ok, I'll play! The noises mine makes are usually circumstantial, like tyre noise at over 120kph. Every now and then there's a bit of a squeak that comes from the clutch pedal on depression, but not all the time. I haven't suffered the plastic on plastic dash squeaks that others have, thankfully. There's a touch of diff whine, but this is normal :) Oh, and I think I might need the front right bearings repacked or replaced, they're a bit squeaky now and then (not that I've been subjecting the front end to high braking temperatures ) The interior isn't quite as quiet as an AU2 with the new firewall, but that's to be expected. All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. Certainly there's no noises that are repetitive or intrusive (except that lovely exhaust note :wink2: )

Originally posted by jaytyn I'll Start. my AUII doesnt really have any big ones. Just a small occasional one from the glove box.
And the door seals right next to your ear makes a click click click click noise. its soft, but a pain in the arse.
Those are the only two issues I have with my Falcon. The glove box doesn't really bother me, but the drivers window is a pain in the arse... I've had it checked by my dealer twice and it's still there...
Well i think this is a good thread that i've dug up from back in the days. For all other AUII/AUIII owners here, what noises are you guys experiencing in their car.
I have a small rattle under the water melon centre console facia, though it seems to cure it self after some foam. It happens on rough roads.
The window chatter is there but i think i've eliminated some of the sound with foam between the rubber seals.
Last of all the infamous XR6 HP Manual driveline NVH issues, though i've learnt to ignore it now. :s3 :s5
Apart from that i think at cruising speed the NVH on the AUII/AUIII is excellent.
