2015 1.4 TSi crackling sound

Post by pegasus » Sat Dec 31, 2016 12:45 pm

Wondered if any-one had come across what sounds like a faint "crackling sound" (for want of a better description!).
This seems to come from the passenger side front dash area when the car is motoring.
On an old car I would suspect a speedo cable otl. but this must all be electronic.
The car is still under warranty of course but my garage is a few miles away.

Have discovered the cause of the "crackling"
Am ashamed to say that it was from the radio!
Have not yet fully read the User Manual (acronym...RTFM ??)
ps: with apologies.
