So the other morning I started hearing this whining sound at idle. It was the first time I've heard it, and after I shut off the car and turned it back on, it went away, so I didnt really think about it. Now the sound is back. Not every time, but most of the time at idle its there. I thought it was my turbo barrings going, but when I poped the hood and listened, it sounded like it was coming from the top side of the motor, something on the serpentine belt. I think its either the alternator, or whatever sits on the right side of that. I was in the taco bell parking lot so I didnt really check it out too much, I heard the sound again and wanted to see what it was.
It sounds almost like a super charger whine at idle. Sounds cool as hell, but I know its not
Any ideas, and anyone know the estimated price to replace the alternator on a bugeye?
