I've got a chirping (belt slipping) type noise that sometimes comes from the front right corner (if i look through the wheel arch i can see a belt on something, maybe an alternator or the AC).  Mines under warranty and i was planning to get it looked at in July when i get it serviced.  If you can wait that long i'll let you know what they find.

I'm having the same problem, hot engine front right side. Am waiting for warranty call in.

It is really loud when just sitting in the car.

Hi Guys,had the same problem with my A45 2013. Took Merc 6 months to get the problem. They first blame me but i told them to go suck D ha ha. The cause is over fill of oil and that causes the main crank seal to press against the pully when the engine starts to build more pressure went hot....let me know but that is the problem...very embarrassing when you stop and your AMG is sounding like secound hand ford 😂
