    High Pitched Whistle coming from passenger side of engine bay

    I noticed this happening about a week ago, I cant tell exactly where it is coming from but it hurts the ears to lean over into the engine bay when the car is running. It only occurs at idle and when I am not on the accelerator... Any ideas? 2005 WRX Sedan. THANKS!

    Sounds like a belt squealing if it's that loud.

    I have 105,000 miles on it, Got a COBB SF intake and BPV, but I don't think it sounds like a belt, its got more of an air whistle sound... Do you know of anything that may be susceptible to leaking there?
