It just wasn't to be !!

 

This morning, the V70 started making a high pitched whining/whirring noise. It stopped as the car got up to operating temperature.

I suspect the alternator, but obviously without going into it, I can't be sure.

 

So, I'm going to take the car off the market until this problem is sorted, and I don't know when that will be.

I'm definitely not going to try to sell the car on with the problem, that's just not me.

 

Sorry to those that were interested.

Oh no! My latest purchase (the Xantia) has started doing this. I'm hoping tightening the aux belt will shut it up again. Have you tried going down that route?

To be honest, I haven't tried anything yet. The noise only lasts for a couple of minutes, then stops abruptly when the temperature guage reaches about halfway between cold and normal.

I'm pretty sure it's the alternator replacing the power used on startup, but until I can cure it, the car is not for sale.
