    without hearing the noise I can only guess. I would have thought that if the belt was on its way out/wearing it would not be a tinny noise, but i have heard a water pump on the way out, & thats near the belt. but as I have said I can only guess, & I am not a mechanic! perhaps someone on here can offer better advice...could the noise be coming from the tensioners ?

    Im presume as they want £40 just to look at it you car is not under warranty...so i would avoid the stealers unless you have £ to burn..

    Cobblers, You've found a fault with your car, it's under warranty, it needs looking at and should be free of charge. Tell them to shove their £40.

    Not an Arnold Clark branch by any chance.....

    These ferkin stealers make my blood boil sometimes.
