    On my car a replacement of the motor is scheduled because of a noise.

    Any other replacements?

    Yes, we had our gearbox and motor replaced during our last service due to a "droning" sound that occurred between 60 - 65 mph.

    The noise is a high piched chirping only between 60 and 65 Km/h ( coincidence with the same number mph???? )

    Did anyone figure out the root cause / more details about this?
