    Hey there! Since i noticed this is the place to ask for help, i decided to give this a shot...

    My 1996 328ic has got a whining sound inside the car, i am pretty sure this is not coming from the engine. It sounds just like if my stereo is badly grounded....but it does not come from my loudspeakers!!
    I tried to follow the noise, and i am pretty sure it comes from the small speaker located under the dashbord just ontop of the drivers feet.....It sounds just like a bad ground, gets louder as i give more RPM.

    Any ideas? I have asked for help here before, and i am very grateful that you guys take your time to help others, like myself.
    Thanx in advance!

    That's the sounder for the OBC.
    First thing to do is disconnect it and see if the noise remains, if it does, start looking into the clutch release bearing.
