I have had a loud whining noise when the car is started from cold.This has been present for a while now. From some research, I found out that it was from the seconday air injection.

While checking the pipework, I found the centre of the main fain had broken through the casing of the secondary air pump! I have got a second hand unit but I need to find out why the fan is so close to the pump.

I do fairly regular VCDS scans and a few days ago I got a fault saying the No. 2 fan was obstructed. On further investigation, AC pipework is preventing it from turning.

I stripped the front of the car a bit this evening but can't find any cause for these issues. All panels, brackets etc look to be lined up as they should.

Would anyone have any ideas??
