    Default idler pulley or turbo ???

    Hi guys, Ive got one for ya...
    Ive have a vectra 1.9 (120) 2007.
    I have a strange noise (whining) from the engine..
    Ive had my mechanic look at it and he reckons that its coming from the area of the turbo so the noise is the impeller ....
    The car has no fault codes and has full power through the rev range.No smoke from the back.
    The noise sounds like this......

    Whats your thoughts...pulley or alternator or could it be the turbo ?
    Taking the serp belt off will tell but I thought I would ask first ..
    Thankyou Tosh.
