Hey Guys

I was comming home from work today. and i noticed on the way, there is a weird like supercharger noise comming from the front of the engine somewhere.

from idle upwards.

Really bad whine noise.

Engine performs fine and car does not have any power loss.

has anyone had any problem like this before or know where it could come from
