Wooshing noise from inside AU dash
I have recently had my AU XR6 in at Courney & Patterson Ford to weld some cracks in the scuttle panel which were causing water to leak onto my feet during rain.
Since I got the car back there has been a wooshing noise from the dash associated with pressing the accelerator. It increases directly in reltion to the accelerator being pressed, and sounds simmilar to the heatr/fan being switched on.
The noise is usually not very loud, however at times it sounds like a leaf, or something starts rattling around in there - which is quite annoying. This can sometimes be heard even at idle.
Courtney & Patterson say that they can't hear anything, and it's probably just engine noise - which is bull sh!t.
Any help on the cause of the noise would be greatly ppreciated.
