    Default Advice please Signum 2.0 DTI ratchety engine noise, and squeek..!

    right I have a squeek coming from the drivers side area of the engine bay, which happens when the engine is switched off, it's doing it every time the engine is switched off. I have searched and aux drive belt or/and tensioner seem to be the best bet (do you agree),

    also, I have a noise coming from the engine, not sure if it is meant to be there or not, i have only just recently noticed it after I removed the under tray and sound proofing, the noise is like a ratchet being turned, and it increases with engine speed, (in neutral and while driving), I have searched youtube for chain and tensioner problems, piston slap, rod slap, tappetts, big end knocking and associated engine noises but nothing comes close, its a constant regular noise but only when the engine speed increases, no noise on idle, any ideas....? could this be related to the aux drive belt tensioner...?

    Im stuck with it at the mo, no going to vauxhall, it cost me £700 january for a clutch and flywheel and I don't really have the money for more problems,

    well as the sound isint there on idle but is there wile the car is in neutral, and it increases with engine speed and neutral speed. when you removed the under covers maybe you left somthing catching an a drive shaft or the tyre, could be something as simple as that, but id be more inclined to think its not and engine problem but a drivetrain problem.
