Holes at the top and bottom of mirror

Had the same problem with excessive road noise. Plugged the holes on the top and bottom of the mirror bracket problem solved.

One other thing you might check is the Shifter Cable. If it's happening once you get into top gear at highway cruising speed and goes away immediately after you let off the throttle, that might be your issue. Some have described it, almost as a high-pitched cricket noise or something similar. For me, it was positively deafening. I took mine to FreightLiner over the issue and it was addressed under TSB-355625 / KPP-294201 and isolator kit 2650 fixed the issue. The kit was only $100 but they took 2 hours to install it so it ended up being about a $300+ fix. -It did solve my particular issue, however and was well worth it.

Had that kit installed under warranty. Now ours is very quiet, normal conversation is no problem. No wind noise either.

I had the same issue, but mine was still under Freightliner's warranty. They installed the isolation kit described to me as rubber grommets between the transmission and shifter plate. The "fix" reduced the noise by 90% however, the fix should be removing the transmission replacing the parts causing the noise in the first place not installing a band aide.

I own a 14 Senica and have terrible windshield wind noise. I installed a bug shield from Freightliner thinking it would help but no difference or change. It maybe the character of the creature but I'm not going to stop trying to find a solution. Interestingly enough though I did notice that when the wipers are on the sound lessens when the left wiper extends to the outer portion of the windshield. I'm on it. Jan

Hey Jan -

Although we don't have the noise problem, I've noticed on ours that there is a good deal of "play" in the windshield when I press the tire minder mount suction cup against it. I wonder if your windshield seal might be coming loose. Have you taken it to a Freightliner shop to have it looked at?

Have fun in OSH this year - wish I could make it up there!

I took the wipers off and drove it but the high pitch sound was still there. I too taped over the upper and lower holes of the upper left mirror bracket, made a huge difference. I always look for the more difficult things first I suppose. The air going over these two holes is like blowing over the top of a soda bottle like we used to do as kids, same deal. I may rap a piece of rubber over the bracket and tie strap it. This will eliminate the air passing over and can be removed if needed.

Oh man mine whistles like a high pitch flute and I'm hard hearing. I just made a little rubber faring which I tie strapped to the upper mirrors which eliminates all the noise. Wish I knew how to attach a picture.

Thank you memphis2. All along I thought it was the turbo but realized it only made the noise when in overdrive and when OD was turned off noise stoped. I can't wait to get it to freightliner service center and have it fixed.
