whineing noise 172 phase1

  renaultsport clio 182
anyone any idea on this one its defo coming from inside the top end of the engine,it started while i was just stood still in traffic and is more noticable when the car is revved or actually moving,its like a cam belt whine thats to tight but its not the belts or pulleys like i say its in the head.

cheers in advance.
its the idler bearing at the bottom... noise travells. I had mine replaced a year ago and its just started doing it again.

thats what i thought fubur,thing is when i put my ear actually on the engine say from the pulley side you get to roughly the middle renaultsport logo on the intake manifold and it becomes very much more noticable.
