Strange noise under the cam belt cover

Recommended Posts

Replaced a set of wet belt , cam belt  and auxiliary belt some 6.5k miles ago. Used Dayco kits. Recently engine developed a strange dull, grinding noise in all driving conditions. There's no issues with the car performance.

Any suggestions what the problem may be? Cheers!!!

Anyone? Any ideas?

This grinding noise is from the direction of the cam/belt cover, aux.belt. Happens after engine warms to the normal operating temperature and the sound intensity stays the same despite the varying rpm. I'm scratching my head.....

I wonder if it's the engine mount collapsed?  Everything around the belts all moves in time with RPM, struggling to think of anything else that wouldn't!

Shall inspect and post again. TBH engine seem to be vibrating when shut down as well.
