my 1.6 16V is making a strange noise.
The noise is a sort of rattling, scraping noise. (also the odd "pigoen" type sound)
it is coming from the cambelt side of the block sounds like it is coming from the top towards the bulk head.
I removed the aux belt today and turned the engine over and the noise is still there therefore it is not anything to do with the auxerialy drive.
the cambelt was changed in march last year and the invoice states a cambelt kit.
what can be causing this noise??
it has been present for quite a while now and at first i thought it was either the alternator bearings or the aux belt tensionor but its neither of these.
