    Default 1.9 150 whine

    my car makes a whining noise as shown in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR5R3asovdM
    what does it indicate that i need sorting out, because the car runs great without any problems at the moment, Most thanks to God.

    Anyone?

    Just realised that that's my smokey vectra in the clip.
    I can't remember when I changed my aux belt idler. I know I have. But I think this clip was taken after the decat pipe was fitted which seemed make the turbo a little louder. Everything is still working fine, so it's not as if the turbo was on it's way out.


    EDIT - just checked the car info I keep. The clip was filmed last August and I changed the aux belt idler last September so that's what the noise will be.
