Gudday from Australia, this is my first time posting on a forum anywhere so be gentle!

I have a 2002 112 cdi Vito and it's making an unusual sound.

When on the freeway travelling at 90 - 100 km/h under load, it makes a droming noise coming from the engine area. This sounds like an exhaust problem but has been checked by a mechanic and he couldn't find anything :( , and neither could the Mercedes Benz dealers workshop previously :mad: .

Anyone have any ideas to help me, or is there other information I can provide to help with a diagnosis? :confused:

Thanks in advance

had similar problem more like a knocking sound at idle with air con on. a high speeds sound like a howling noise . it was a siezed alternator pulley had to replace the lot costly because it has an internal clutch . about $280 to replace from dealer. check also turbo intake hose makes quiet a loud droning noise, but you will notice a slight power lose.
hopes this helps

Does The noise happen in every gear ? Is the noise engine speed related or only vehicle speed related ? If I was to have a guess I would say that the air filter housing mounts are missing or the cover ot on correctly. Have you had it serviced lately ie has someone been near the air filter ?

the noise is engine related. at 2250 rpm in second and third gear the droan is slite, but in fourth eg: driving on freeway on level ground slite droan. when you come to a slite hill it becomes louder. no engine power is lost.

seems noise is still there , if the noise sounds a little louder at slower speeds .try
driving in a straight line then do a wide turn on open road then do it the other way.
if noise disappears on one side , you may need new wheel bearings, worn wheel bearings can make a very simmilar noise. really worn bearings make a grinding noise. worth a check

hope this helps

mine was the drive shafts - probably the cv - but it was as cheap to get a new pair of shafts and wheel bearings - and took less time.

if this route is taken , be sure to remember the intermediate shaft bearing its the worst bit but only costs a few quid.

I got shafts on ebay and bearings from merc dealer - it was the cheapest route and only took a couple of hours start to finish (sat on floor with set of pullers and big hammer)

Mine was the same after I changed the air fillter, the two clips under the lip of the wing had not connected & caused it to boom at certain speeds
