whistle

Hi, does anyone have an annoying whistle someway near the front of the truck at about 80 kph? I have a bug deflector and thought it might be the cause, but I would have to remove it to find out for sure.
any help would be great. 2010 F-150 supercab

Maybe try putting some masking tape around where you think the whistling is coming from on the deflector and see if it changes?

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

It is definitely the bug deflector, I have the same issue and have heard many others complain about this with the bug deflector. I just decided I could put up with a little bit of wind noise to protect my hood. I just turn up the radio.
