    It's sound like? this

    phone does not transmit it in full picture, but you can hear how bad it is. Especially on 12-13 sec.

    Yeah, same horrible noise. Im very dissaponited in Fanatec, for me this is unacceptable.

    Another big dissaponited in Fanatec was "quick" system. Yes you can quick install the wheel, but for take it off, need to put a lot of strength! I even hit myself with the wheel in the jaw because wheel is suddenly came off...

    i had v1.0 and v2.0, they never made that sound.
    i know that pain, on the older wheel bases the rims came off alot easier without cracking your jaw.

    That will be coil whine. Google it and you'll find it's not terribly uncommon with graphics cards too. It's basically a vibration noise coming from particular components. It doesn't indicate a failing component it's just annoying.

    It's sounds like coil whine. But coil whine on video card happens only under load. On base it's all the time. :(

    I had this wheelbase (2.5) in the past and it made the same noise. But not all the time. A few minutes in it would start making the squeal. If I turned it off and on it would go away for a bit, but returned after a short time. Coil whine generally changes pitch as it goes on.

    If it's not coil whine it could be coming from the fan bearing possibly.

    I guess will be no answer from Fanatec support about it. And only way to fix coil whine is sell the wheelbase :)

    @SandroX ,

    You expect Fanatec support to be available here more often than on their own webside? Obviously you should start a warranty ticket with Fanatec. Use the support chat.

    Then start a live support chat on their webside. Don't expect fast answers here.
