Finally tracked down an annoying whine/ noise.
When i start my car (2001 s3) with the climate on.. I get an annoying squeek/ squeel for around 10 seconds.
Today i traced it down to being one of the condenser fans..
The one nearest the battery.
Is this a common fault?.. easily repaired?. Lubed?
Will it need replacing?. If so can it be done in situe.. or will the front end need to come off?.
