    Hi everyone. Have had my P85D for 18 months now. Love the machine. Question about a new sound I just noticed (right after installing 8.0 actually but I assume the two are unrelated). High pitched squeal coming from the front of the car, passenger side. Goes away if I turn off the AC so I assume it is from the AC fan. You can hear faintly inside the car but it is fairly loud when you stand right by the front right wheel well. Two questions:

    1) Anyone else had this?
    2) Ok to wait for my next appointment in 2 months or is there a risk it'll stop working altogether?

    Thanks in advance for the thoughts.

    Does it sound like this?

    I've had it happen occasionally the past year or so. I'll bring it up at my service appointment in a few weeks.

    Sorry. Can't seem to hear any abnormal noise in your video. Mine is really a high pitched squeal coming from around the right front wheel well. Only does it if AC is on. And you hear mostly from outside the car. Got an appointment set up for the 24th to check it out. Will report back.
