Hi All ive just bought a 307 hdi 90 I have had a 406 c5 and xsara hdi before so know a lot of the common tell tale signs, however at idle there is like a rattle or chatter that disappears when revs and creates a sort of whine it doesn’t seem to be gear or clutch related as happens whether driving or stationary and even with clutch pedal down I have an old invoice from the previous owner being quoted for a new alternator but the work was never done could it be a bearing or pulley on it. Just to reiterate this rattle or chatter disappears complete when revved or throttle blipped

Most common rattle at idle which disappears when revving is the timing belt tensioner pulley.
Piece of 15mm copper pipe on the timing belt cover whilst the engine is running and stick your ear to the other end will amplify the noise if its coming from there.

See if any of the posts that hold your engine cover on have snapped, they rattle like mad when they go

One of the reasons I no longer have a cover on,

snapped post > cover movement > coolant bleed screw got sheared off :(

I dont think its the crankshaft pulley ive done them on my old cars and doesnt seem to sound the same and doesnt appear at any revs other than idle i'll check the shields, re the engine covers i always remove mine because of the thermostat housing

well after my usual fun 50+ hour week at work i decided to look for this rattle and think ive found the suspect looks like the aux belt tensioner is jumping around like a kangaroo is this common on these 307's

The only time I've heard a whine is when we put my new cambelt on slightly too tight

I know its a different belt but see if the whine persists after you change it :thumb:

Well changed my crankshaft pulley belt and tensioner and the "BA BA BA BA BA" noise has gone but still a whine but not the wife lol so am thinking alternator bearings have been quoted £100 for exchange unit may fork out but gonna go see and alternator repair specialist see if he will replace bearings and pulley for me.

Usually noises like this are from dust on the actual timing belt. Obviously a forum is not going to diagnose a noise so it could actually be anything.

I know this is a different car but mine sounds just like this hence me thinking its an alternator bearing
will have to pull my finger our and have a look, sadly after changing the belt and tensioner i didnt get chance to check with the belt off as i was in a real rush as father in laws car broke down and had to go and sort that price of crap out
