Default rx330 whine during acceleration

Hi all

I have a rx330 with approx 200k KM on the odo.

Can anyone ID what type of high pitch whine during acceleration is? It sounds like a spinning whine?

It occurs when accelerating from 30km/h to 50km/hr and then stops. I don't notice a lost of power/torque.

Could it be an issue with the transmission or the transfer case and/or differential? the tranny fluid was changed not too long ago (using toyota ATF)

here is a video of it: https://streamable.com/s/lx096/gzifra (occurs at 3 seconds in)


thank you

I don't have a solution, I just wanted to note that I also have this same "whine" on my 05 RX 330 with 88,000 on the dash.
