Question about 2005 Scion xB
The engine is now very loud. I brought it into a dealer. They said the engine hood was making this noise and said they fixed it. Now the loud noise is coming from in or near the belt on the left side. I shut the air conditioner off to make sure it was not that.
No I have a noise coming from left side while idling I popped hood and tried to trace where its coming from.....there's the cable from the alternator to the battery when I touch it I could now feel the knocks coming from that cable so its probably a problem with the alternator I haven't experienced a dead battery yet so it still works but don't know for how long

It's the a/c compressor making the noise. Took me 5 minutes to find it, it's louder when it gets wet . I've dropped small amount of oil between the shield plate and the compressor. Stops squealing until it rains again. Don't know a permanent fix I'm trying to find that myself. Just to be sure pull the hand brake place it in drive and turn on your a/c, that's how I found the problem.

Yes we have same issue with my scion, i think you can tighten the hood possible, i havent looked in to it but that might be a thing to do or put some rubber pads on hood so it doesnt rattle
