    Default vectra c 2.2 advice needed

    hi boys ive owned the car since october its on a 06 plate its now done 47,000 miles. its allways sounded a little noisy but thats due there being no sound proofing under the bonnet. The car is an automatic and the last few days the noise is getting worse, and its only worse when the car is in drive and i have my foot on the break i.e stoped at lights ot jcts e.t.c any ideas on why its getting so noisy or is this a common problem thanks all
