    Default Whats that noise?

    Morning all,

    I had a good poke around under the bonnet yesterday whilst fitting my 'Caterman special' Whilst I had the hood up I needed to start up and shut down a few times and noticed after shutting down a whining noise a bit like a small pump running for about 10-15 seconds. I'm not sure if it was doing it before I fitted the box because it was only after fitting I needed to run the car.

    Any ideas what it is?

    Tell you what though, I have a rattle that comes from the B piller, I think that is it,s name. The one that the seat belt is mounted to, when I go over a large bump [ there seems to be more and more, or is it just me imagining it] It makes a loud rattle. pi$$es me off a bit.

    Think we have the same thing - a metallic single knock......?

    Though it might be in the door and had the door card off to have a look but nothing obvious.

    TBH it's also driving me slightly mad as it's right by my right ear.....
