My Moho is on a Ducato Euro 6 150 go. base. It’s only 6 months old with 4000 miles. The engine has developed a high pitched whistling noise which changes pitch with engine noise. I am in Spain at present so a little concerned about taking it to a dealer. There is no discernible fall off in performance. Someone on another forum has suggested it could be the idler bearing on the auxiliary belt tensioner. Is this a serious problem? Any advice would be most welcome.

Sounds a bit like a leak on turbo inlet pipe; would think that's more likely on a new van especially if it disappears occasionally. Probably just need clip adjusting/tightening up - simple job but I've no idea where it is mind!

Good Fiat service agent should solve it in seconds!

I can recommend the Fiat Professional dealer in Denia, on the right hand side of the dual carriageway from the motorway to the town. Sorted me out without hassle on a couple of occasions.

Edit: Automocion Moll is the name
