"singing" v-6

I hve an '07 v6 and when I kill the engine, I get a loud whine. This is not like a belt squeak or anything like that. The closest thing I can compare it to is running your finger around the rim of a glass x10. It has done it only once constantly at idle but almost always does it on shutdown. Anyone else had this issue? Its a terribly loud but oddly musical, unlocatable sound.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Possibly, but it is a distinctly metallic sound, like a pulley bearing going bad, but much "smoother" if that makes sense.

Touareg engine noise:

Here's a link. It has a terrible other noise which I have decided must be an alternator bearing or something to that effect, it decided to speak up for the video as well, but the sound I'm referencing is right at the end when I kill the engine. It is a much "smoother" sound than the squealing bearing. Ill work on another vid as sonn as I'm done getting yelled at for posting instead of cooking the salmon.

I just had a squeak coming from the combi valve I think. I felt the stainless steel secondary air pipe and it was vibrating during the squeaking. Also I was moving the join with the air pipe and air was leaking out.

It's almost like the combi valve is sticking

When does your squeal occur?
