Yes, another what is that noise thread...

Driving home from work the other day and as I come to a stop you can hear a really faint rattle, seems to be a bit louder and more frequent when the Aircon is on.

Odd thing is the noise is only evident under 1000rpm, hence can only be heard at idle.

Took a quick look this afternoon, the noise appears to be coming from the Accessory belt area. I did have a new water pump and new belts fitted a few weeks ago, don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Any suggestions?

could have forgotten to tighten the nut on the pretentioner, could be something else loose

could also be your radio isnt turned up enough :)

^ im with that guy, having heard it it seems to be the pretenioner pulley bearing, so when you get home just losen it off and it should be fine
