    Rattling noise coming from cambelt side of engine (audio clip inside)

    I found the problem - it was the waterpump failing

    Hi all,

    I was hoping somebody may be able to indentify this noise coming from my girlfriends engine, its the 1.6 16v X16XEL engine. I was wondering whether it may be alternator or cambelt tensioner bearings. Thanks for the

    The pulleys were fine so I thought it may be waterpump. It was due for a cambelt change anyway so I took it to vauxhall this morning and got them to check out the waterpump at the same time. A new cambelt kit and waterpump later and all sorted, the waterpump was failing.
