    Default chirping noise from engine bay

    I've got a chirping noise from the drive belt area sounds like a bird in the engine, could it be the water pump, alternator or drive belt pulley?

    Any idea of costs please?

    Mine turned out to be the clutch on the alternator pulley.

    Take the alternator belt off and spin the pulleys to check them.

    Also start the car and see if its the cambelt tensioner/guides or water pump whilst the belt is off.
