Hi, i went to look at a car today and noticed this kind of whining noise (youtube.com/watch?v=CW0tJhYivPY) anyone know if that's normal? thanks

ps aircon switches on halfway through which is a bit loud

is it an auto or manual, sounds like a transmission whine however i don't think they happen when the car is idle .

Its a manual
I wouldn't say that was normal, Sounds like a pump/belt noise.
Either a belt noise or your air con compressor pump. Does the noise come and go with the air con on/off?

no air con has no impact on it, don't own the car but have an inspection organised and test drive, the car has been standing for a while maybe thats why...
Does it change if you press the clutch down?
I went to view a car once and all I got was this annoying constant whine - left her at home went I went back to pick the car up X)

Sounds like a belt. Either way not normal!

"Noisy aircon pumps can be from either the bearing or the system needing regassed since the regass is cheap its best trying this first also the ti vct uses a different aircon pump a vss pump which varies the gas so it does not click on and off regularly like older pumps but runs continously." the car is the ti vct, maybe its air con...
