2003 Mercedes Benz G55 AMG Base 8 Cyl 5.50L


Why does my car make a loud chirping noise when I first accelerate?

The chirping occures when first begiining to move or when accelerating from a very low speed. Sounds like it's coming from the rear. Local Mercedes dealer says it is the supercharger and that nothing can be done about it.

Have you verified its coming from the rear? Because you just said "Sounds like it's coming from the rear. ". And yes, i have to agree, i only know of 2 things that chirp

1. Birds
2. Superchargers

I love the sound of a supercharger spooling by the way.

Anyway, if your benz dealer said its the supercharger, who am i to disagree, im online and didnt hear the noise first hand.
