    confused Chirping noise on cdti

    Hello

    I've been a loyal reader on this forum for quite a while now. I've been able to solve some minor problems i've had thanks to this forum.
    I found a video of someone having exactly the same problem as me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvpzJ0RO2b4
    When i start my engine (Vectra C, 1.9cdti, 8v) i hear this chirping noise, but only when doing a cold start. Does anyone have an idea what this could be?

    Thanks!

    Not sure how urgent it is to be changed. More than anything the noise will drive you mad

    It cost me £50 at the dealers to change
