    Default Help this noise is driving me crazy!

    Ok I have such an annoying noise coming from the engine bay it is driving me crazy

    It is a high pitched noise whine which can be heard even when the bonnet is closed & the windows are closed. It is louder than the engine itself.

    Has anyone had anything similar?

    Thanks

    Does it increase when you rev it? If yes, I'm thinking the turbo or a faulty turbo hose...

    I am 100% sure its not from there. I checked the pipes. It sounds more like from the belt area. Is the belt to the left of the engine block (standing with bonnet open at front of car) an alternator belt?
