    Sounds like a drive belt or tensioner, get it checked or it may cause a severe failure and you may lose power steering or worse !

    Quite possibly, once had this go on an old 1.7tdi and it wrecked:
    water pump, belts (3), pulleys (2), tensioner, crankcase housing and metal housing mechanism !!!

    Does sound like a tensioner has siezed either exposed on the drive belt or possibly internal on the timing belt, like others advise, take great care and have it checked ASAP
