: 2000 A6 Whining sound from engine bay

HI everyone,

I recently bought a 2000 A6.
Everything about the car is nice except for a whining noise that comes from the engine bay. This sound only comes when i try to accelerate. But if accelerate more or take my foot off , the sound goes away. The sound is starting to really annoy me, so if anyone had the same problem... please help :(

Hi! Could be tensioner, A/C clutch related, alternator... Checking is - taking the belt (not timing) off for 5-10 secs.
