My Fix

I fixed the issue on my 2007 Redline. The ducts coming from the bumper back into the tire well was hitting the tires when I turned really sharp. I pull the ducts forward until they “clicked” into the bummer flange and reset the filler material around the duct through the hole in the tire well. 250 Miles and the noise has not come back.

Thanks Ray. I had the same problem with my 09 Redline. I tried the same fix (pull the ducts forward until they "click"). The driver side air duct clicked, but I did not hear a click on the passenger side. Hopefully this will fix the issue. I just did it two minutes ago so I have to take the car out for a spin and test if this worked. Thanks again.
