    Welcome! Never heard of that grill, so I may not be of any help, unfortunately. My only guess is to triple check all bolts so it's secure or add in some padding somewhere.

    Welcome Rick to the best Tundra forum on the planet.

    I suggest use compressed air and take the nozzle and shoot the areas around the grill where the fasteners are. This could help replicate the air pressure on the grill.

    You may isolate that one fastener that is causing the vibration/whistling noise. Then tighten the fastener or add a piece of 3m double sided tape in the location between the grill and grill surround you suspect is causing the noise. 3m double sided tape can secure and hopefully isolate the vibration. You can stack the 3m tape if you need it thicker..worth a shot.

    Welcome Rick! I'm in Scarborough. Any chance its the throttle body intake screen and not the grill?
