I've been hearing this really weird noise coming from the left side of the hood (right side if you are in the cabin)since after about 1 week of picking the car up brand new from a dealer.
I would describe it as a chirping/squeeky/metallic noise. The tone of the noise changes rather erratically. I would only hear this intermittently but I'm hearing this more frequently now.
I had taken the car into the service centre twice but on both occassions they failed to nail down where the noise is coming from. They have checked the belt and its tension and they both seemed fine.
I'm now thinking now it could be one of the bearing/s which is faulty.
I've uploaded the audio file which is a recording of the noise. (you can hear my gf saying that I should take the car back to the dealer in Korean..lol)
Thanks for your help.
