Hi all, I be interested if any petrol head Yeti owners have experienced a buzzing noise from the engine compartment at between 2-3000 rpm! most annoying and spoils the vehicle. Seems to be in the area of No2 injector.Regards Keith L
I get it in my 1.2 TSI. I always thought it was just the exhaust system resonating at certain revs. A little bit annoying but I just put it down to a design issue that added to its "character".
I have also had a similar thing occur in an old 93 model Peugeot 405 SRDT. When I got the workshop to have a look they said it was a baffle in the exhaust that resonated at certain revs. It would require a new replacement exhaust section to fix so I left it alone due to cost versus benefit issues.
It might be worth inquiring about it being looked at as a warranty repair. Maybe they have a fix for it.
Let your dealer have a look and listen. There are some things which Skoda are content "leave as is" and we are expected to live with but dealers being in the front line often have un-official fixes. I myself had a very annoying noise / rattle which my dealer persevered with and after stripping and re-building the air intake plumbing finally cured the problem.
Only visible additions are bit of sponge at various places and the black plastic pipe thatenters the plenum chamber has been repositioned. Unless you where looking for it you wouldn't notice any changes from original.
It seems as though I have started some topic of conversation with my mail. The noise isdefinitelynot exhaust orientated; with astethoscope in and around No2 injector it is prominent.My request for assistance was met with some reluctance from my local dealer however, it is booked in next week for "diagnostics" what this space.

I hope they don't just fob you off with some "it's normal" or "there's nothing showing on diagnostics" excuse. I hope they can fix it for you...and it is something minor. It will be interesting to see the outcome.
Well Keith I watched this space and was finally rewarded with your fixed post! Like you and possibly others, I would like to know the cause and solution applied to the buzzing noise. Albeit, I am please to know it is fixed and you are a happy chappy!
