    Hi everyone, I've attached a quick clip of a noise my car makes. The noise seems to be more noticeable from a cold start but is always present. When pulling away slowly from a standing start or under gentle acceleration I can hear a high pitched noise. The car has been to an independent and MB for services but neither have been able to help.

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks

    Ed

    Your description is exactly the same as mine. It can't be normal surely?

    They all do that sir.

    It's a perfectly normal noise. Don't worry too much about it.
