drive car round yard or quiet car park at 5 - 10 mph turn wheels as much as possible if the whinnig gets worse / louder then it will be your pas fluid - needs sorting

if it is making a whining noise whilst the car is stationary then it aint your pas fluid - my mate has a 1.2 16v and his alternator used to whine obviously it was louder when it was being driven

could be water pump or bearings to one of the pumps

safest thing is go to a reputable garage and have it checked out once they have located the problem they can either fix it or you buy the parts an have ago yourself if your fairly competant
