If the Jetta is under warranty, take it in. Could be a bad alternator from the factory, eh?

Altenator is on other side( Passenger). this noise is not regular it is highly sporatic. I don't know if it is just a "deisel" noise. One idea i have is it is a cooling fan that when it hits temps switches on. or it could be a bad relay. ANY DEISEL PEOPLE PLEASE HELP!!!
