Whistle Noise

My first post so forgive me if I get this wrong.
I have a Fiat 500 and there is a funny whistle noise that I think is coming from the front, it almost sounds like a tambourine. It's intermittent and only happens when I have my foot on the accelerator and will often stop when I brake. It is worse when I turn towards the right but only sometimes! I have had the brakes checked and they are only 45% warn and the suspension is fine. Any Ideas? Thanks.

Re: Whistle Noise

It seems to be getting worse but it still only happens randomly. I've done 31,000 in mine and I think it started around the 20,000 mark. I'm going to have to take it to the garage and hope that what ever it is is covered by the warrenty! Thanks.
