    Default tinny sound that gets louder with revs?

    the vecs started making a strange noise recently. its a 57 plate CDTI covered 43k.

    as above, whether at rest or on the move it make a tinny sound which gets worse with revs.

    for that reason im thinking somewhere around the belt?? anyone else had this?

    as its still under warranty im going to put it into VX anyway, but would just like to be able to go there with an idea of what the problem is......


    thanks in advance

    Cdti has a belt mate so won't be that

    Could be a loose heat shield some where or loose cover

    Or does it sound internal to the engine
