2017 Axis noise from grill

I am having a howling noise form the lower front grill area. This only happens when the wind is blowing a certain direction and if i am traveling 50 mph plus. Does anyone have any ideas to make this stop?

There are numerous posts on here. Some have put a mesh behind it. Some have bought an aftermarket grill. Some have contacted Thor and Thor has sent them a mesh grill (this assumes your current grill is made up of a series of plastic squares)

That is true for ACE's and other F-53 based units; I haven't heard of Thor sending out a grill to an Axis or Vegas owner.

Sorry, my bad. I thought I first read about the grill issue when I was researching Axis/Vegas.

No issues...I could be wrong too LOL

Axis/Vegas owners have put meshes behind the grill, for protection.

Are you sure that you didn't get a pedestrian stuck in there, at the last crosswalk that you encountered?

Customcargrills.com measure the area you need, look at their stock (color, opening size, air flow restriction) order a piece, cut it to proper size with tip snips and zip tie it behind your current grill...noise gone. Mine cost $106 shipped, gloss black, honeycomb shaped expanded metal. Not even noticeable
