Engine noise



  Clio RS ph1
Can anyone tell me if this noise is normal?

My garage tells me it`s probably the tensioner bearing of the cambelt.

I have took it to the garage where I bought the car to get it fixed and they tell me it`s nothing, and completely normal.

I just don`t know what to believe anymore. So is it something to worry about or not??

Think your garage sounds about right. one of the pulley bearings, alternator or tensioner.

Get some deep throat in there. Sounds like a 1.2 sewing machine :)

Thanks Andy! Anybody else got some ideas? I went to another Renault dealer today and been told there`s nothing to worry about:S

He said it`s just the cambelt and that on some cars it`s louder than on others. Is there someone who reconized the noise?

Its deffinatly not right. I can tell you that now, It could be the aux belt tentioner roller the fixed roller on the aux belt. Or could be one of the 3 pulleys on the cambelt routing.

The first thing I would do is to remove the aux belt and run it without for a minit to see if the noise goes away.

Now that sounds rough :dead:... must worry you to get the revs up with that noise, sounds like a tight belt but could be anything

The aux belt has been off but the noise was still there... Must be one of the pulleys on the cambelt routing then. I'll hope to find out what it realy is next week. The situation drives me crazy:(

Digging up a thread from the dead but that sounds like the cambelt is too tight. Did you ever find out what it was?
