147 1.6 TS Sounds Like Jet

I all.

I have a 2002 147 1.6 TS. There is a very loud noise coming from the right front of my car, sounds like it just behind the right front wheel. Its there when i start it up and it doesn't go away at all. When u hit round about 5000 RPM it sounds like a super charger on steroids!!! and im not kidding.

I'v had it checked out by our local Alfa dealer here in South Africa. They said it might be the veriator ( witch i still dont know what that is ) but it is nothing serious. The noise started when i recieved my car back after its 120 000 km major service, witch i belive they change the cam belt?

Is it something to worry about? Can it lead to a loss in performance? And how can i fix it?

sounds to me like the starter motor is not disengaging and turning with the engine.

a belt change shortly followed by this type of noise would usually suggest the belt is too tight or one of the pulleys on the belt is out of alignment causing the belt to scrub on the pulley wall. if that is the case it is a serious problem that will lead to the belt snapping.
