    My car makes a whine under engine braking, is that what you mean? I think that's normal...

    Mine made a similar whine/squeal and it was the serpentine self tensioner, I also changed the belt at the same time and it came to about £60.
    This only occurred at slow speeds and was fairly easy to fit, hope it helps.
