Re: Spider High Pitch 'Whistle' from engine??
Extremike - My 2001 2.0 TS Spider has always had the in car whistle referred to by the others - which I never really worried about (I can believe that this is electrical/relays etc.).
However I too, also recently noticed a strange additional whistle from the engine bay area, again when warmed up and on idle. My first thought was the induction system, as someone else has suggested.
But guess what, I too had the cambelts, tensioners, the whole lot changed recently (i.e. about 600 miles ago), again by a main dealer.
I can't get mine in to a dealer to be checked for a couple of weeks or so, but I will be very interested to hear how you get on!! Could be a batch of duff parts out there.
