A maxima is a Nissan - right? You are on a Honda hybrid forum so not a lot of knowledge here. You could temporarily remove the drive belt from the front of the engine and see if the noise goes away. If so, then it could be an idler pulley bearing or maybe the A/C bearing.

You can make a effective stethoscope with a length of small diameter tubing like vacuum hose. You can then listen to various candidates, BUT BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO GET A FINGER IN THE MOVING PARTS.
