    HELP..noise from under the bonnet

    Hi there

    I have a 1.6 16 V mk4.
    Recently I have started hearing a noise, which gets faster when i rev (even when stationary)..manly i can hear it from the right hand side (drivers side).

    It sounds like something might be rubbing. Please help and advise what it could be and how much it might cost to fix.

    Thanks

    Depends where you go to get it replaced - I'd say between £220 and £250 all in. The waterpump must be changed at the same time too.

    It doesn't sound like a humming noise does it? Kind of like a muffled washing machine?

    If so, mine does the same thing... gets louder when i accelerate.

    Try taking off ur aux belt mate & starting the car up... if the noise goes it could be ur aux belt rubbing/slipping, the tensioner barrings, or even 1 of the pumps or the alternator....

    If the noise is still there ur looking @ cambelt/water pump which = bad times...

    Better to fix it now tho than to leave it to cause un-repairable damage

    GUYS!! Good news... sort of...took to mechanics today as I was very worried, turns out it only needed some oil in the engine!!

    I checked it a few weeks ago, seemed fine to me, but obviosuly wasnt (it is my first car). The noise went after 10-15 mins of filling it up. Drove home, sounds good. I just hope I havnt damaged the engine!

    Thanks for the help guys. Im happy again
