remove the belt.

Then start the car and see if the noise has disappeared. If it has then one of the pulleys is at fault.

not a slipping belt im certain of that..

could be a worn bearing ..

its just weird how sometimes it goes away and it usually comes back when the revs go past 3000..

ill try and get a better video..i tried to do a voice recording of it..but couldn't hear it as clear as the video..i will also try removing the belt and see what happends

theres another video, duno if it makes it any clearer..

i will try the belt thing tomorrow but im getting more and more convinced its got something to do with it.

im just confused as to why its only doing it after giving it a boot, and seems to go away if just cruising..

mate the time you spent making and uploading another movie, you couldve removed the belt and seen if it was one of the pulleys making the noise?

If it is the pulleys, then refit the belt, start the car and hold a long screwdriver onto the base of each pulley VERY FUKIN CAREFULLY and you should be able to suss out which one it is

Does it change with revs? if not does it only do it when thermo fans are on?

i would take of the belt and eliminate all the pulley bearings before getting to excited. If its still there then start to look harder... good luck !
