    It's very difficult to tell without hearing it. Have you checked the oil for metal?

    Bottom left on your B is where the Alternator is (looking from Drivers front wing, if its from the front its the power steering pump) as a quick check get a 15mm spanner onto the Aux tensioner and take the Aux belt off, then start the car, if its the Alternator the noise will have gone.

    If it's still there it would most likely be one of the cam belt tensioners
