    2019 TW Airbox noise?

    Hi, picked up a new TW last week. Fun!

    I'm hearing a strange noise when accelerating that sounds like a little something flapping around. I don't think it's the engine knocking. I'll have the service department check it out at 600 miles but they thought what I might be hearing is an emissions valve (or something like that) which is normal. Any thoughts?

    I have some other questions but I'll post them separately to keep the threads topic specific.

    Thanks
    Dan

    Hi Dan, and welcome to the forum!

    I don't know what is causing the noise that you are hearing, but I can assure you that it is not an emissions valve since the TW does not have such a thing. I will be interested to hear what your dealer's service department says, but be forewarned that these engines are notoriously noisy - best described as a bucket of bolts trying to self destruct at higher rpm's.

    Where are you located?

    Hey Brian I'm in Wilmington Delaware.

    Bucket of bolts lol! I put her up on a milk crate and started poking and shaking things around. I think something is rattling. Could be the skid plate, which I zip tied the rear attachment point tight. I found a couple of other possible suspects which I'll address after going for a short ride this evening to see if noise persists.

    Thanks for the info!
    Dan

    Cool, add this info to your profile.

    There may fellow forum members nearby in case you need help or want to get together for a ride.

    Done!

    The droning/rattling may be exhaust related. I'll get my buddy to ride it see what he thinks, he's good at this stuff. Little faith in dealer...
