    Default Strange noise from engine compartiment...?!?!?!?

    Hy.
    For couple days i hear an strange noise from my engine when i start it...(1.9 cdti 150).
    In the morning I start the engine and for 5-8 seconds all is OK....but then starting to clinking from the auxiliary belt area...(not the timing belt area).....
    So I`m asking you if some had this problem...and how to fix it?
    The belt has been changed 10k miles ago, so the belt is ok i think...
    Can be the one of the pulleys?Witch one is more destructible???
    Is this a common fault on this engine??How many is the cost to repair/change??
    And I don`t have the shield under engine (protector)....can i find one Second Hand and cheap in UK but with shipping to Romania?How much it costs?
    Thanks again all...
    Cheers.

    Hope you get sorted... Not sure on that one, but the shield shouldn't be that expensive, £40? I'm guessing...

    I have a similar problem but describe mine as more of a slight squeaking, I'm removing a few parts tomorrow to find out what it is.

    Try turning on the air conditioning - my pump rattles when it's not in use (climate control in ECO mode) but it vanishes when you turn the pump on. Might be worth a shot...

    Today I was at a friend to the garage and I got lift car and got off auxiliary belt .... then I spin all the rolls by hand, but nothing seemed suspicious...the crankshaft roller could not spin as it spins only when the engine is started .... I will try to start the engine tomorrow without auxiliary belt ... would be something wrong with that?
    I think if I start the engine without auxiliary belt and the knocking is still there, can be the crankshaft pulley of the timing belt...not the auxiliary belt?Or i`m wrong with that?
    If my crankshaft roller is dead, does anyone know how much it cost?
    Thanks

    think you can get them for around £100 from ebay. i took the air filter box off and dropped the whole bottom pan as well, its only a slight intermittent squeak and sounds like a dry ball bearing, I'm doing a midlands to west yorks round trip sat so hopefully it will be OK!, i wont be able to do a test by removing the aux belt till next week.

    Do you really want to save a whole 50 quid by buying a part that you have no idea where it's been made, who by, and to what tolerances...? Jsut the the VX one, it's not that much more expensive you know where where it's come from...
