    Hi all.
    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?.


    cheers
    Callum
