    2.0 cdti 163 noise when cold

    Forum Key Rings
    Hu

    Hi I've just got my Insignia 2.0 cdti 163 its a 64 plate with 48k.
    I have a noise from the timing belt\alternator belt area when cold it goes away after a couple of miles check my video the noise is clearer when i'm down at the wheel. You can't hear it from inside the car only when outside.
    I took the car back to the dealer with the video of the noise and they said it was the drive belt pulley and replaced that with the alternator belt but the noise is still there. They are now saying that they will take the cover of the timing belt and lubricate the belt is this just a quick fix if it works?
    I have a 1 year warranty with the car has anyone had a similiar problem?

    Thanks for any advice.

    I used to have that noise, when I did the cam belt I also changed the aux belt tensioner and the pulley on the engine mount, I never figured which one it was but it doesn’t make any unexpected noises now

    Hi, the noise in your video is the same noise that mine was making. I had the timing belt and water pump changed just over a week ago. The noise has gone. Hope this helps

    Sounds like the Water pump. They are known to fail early.
