Thought I'd ask you Guru's a question about a noise I've picked up after my car had come out of the panelbeaters this evening.
It sounds like static / crackling or even like softly ripping velcro and it seems to be coming from the left rear speaker area in my parcel shelf.
I turned off my stereo thinking it was a dodgy speaker but the noise was still there. When I stopped at an intersection the noise stopped completely.
I revved the engine in neutral gear but the noise didn't reappear so I figured it wasn't a bad earth or loose earth connection or that it was picking up the engine noise and vibrating in sympathy with it.
When I started driving again from the intersection the noise came straight back. It seems to only be doing it when the car is moving regardless of the stereo being on or off.
I looked in the boot when I got home but all the wiring seems intact - nothing out of the ordinary that I could see.
I don't suppose anyone here might like to venture a guess as to what might be causing this?
