    Default 2004 206 GTi 180 - Water Pump / Timing Belt Noise?

    Hi guys, bought myself a second hand 206 GTi 180 a month ago, with no mechanical issues, or leaks present. Over the past few weeks however I've started to notice this odd sound coming from the timing belt/water pump area. Not having much experience myself, its difficult to determine exactly what it is, hopefully this video provides you with a better insight.



    The temp gauge sits around the 90degrees mark, engine oil was changed by myself approx 500km ago (Penrite 5w-40, Ryco Z543 Oil Filter).

    Info on the car:

    Struth. Doesn't sound "normal".

    I'm surmising a gutted cat is part of what the sound may be, the rest - well, maybe a good idea to check it out. Does the noise diminish if you run without the auxiliary belt fitted?

    You sure it's not coming from the alternator?

    Cheers for the replies, no I haven't tried taking the belt off because I didn't want to have to if I didn't need to!

    It could be the alternator yeah, but what's the best way to check for that in this particular case?

    Take the aux belt off. If the noise stops, it's in the aux belt "circuit" (ie, idler, tensioner, PAS pump, alternator, AC compressor).

    For that matter, see if the noise changes with your AC on or off.

    Unfortunately, there's usually no quick and easy way to diagnose noises such as this one.

    G'day,
    you could try making a stethoscope from a piece of hose and an old screwdriver blade [or similar]. With one end of the hose in your ear, try touching various parts with the metal end. It is surprising what you can hear, and feel, BUT, be very careful of moving parts.

    ps..I had a water pump 'issue', but it sounded like the noise when you drag a stick along the concrete. How does yours sound when you are moving ?

    Did I do anything last night that suggested I was sane?

    though it doesn't sound like a chirping noise (clutch) try see if the noise changes as the clutch is depressed.

    tbh it sounds like an aux belt noise to me, try revving it or as addo mentions turn on AC, it should increase in speed

    though looking at your video, within the first six seconds, from what i can see of the PAS the belt looks like its flashing white at various bits? maybe that's just the video interlacing with the speed of the belt but the belt looks weird from that angle.


    have someone turn the steering wheel while the car is idleing, and keep an eye on the aux belt
