156 JTD - Intermitent Ticking Sound
Starting to develop a slightly strange problem. Have noticed that sometimes I can hear a clear ticking noise which could perhaps be coming from the aux belt area? The best way to describe it is like electricity arking. It is not regular in beat or timing and clicks intermittently. Sometimes it is barely noticeable and seems to dissapear altogether after 5 mins of driving (not always though).
I have also noticed it however after a long journey of 200+ miles. It has only started doing it recently and noticebly, not long after I had my aux belt, tensioner and front pulley done and the garage tried to re gass my aircon (couldn't in end as leaky pipes :-( ).
Does anyone have any ideas what it could be?? The car isn't driving differently in any way but I want to get it sorted if it could be something potentially bad?
PS - The auxillary belt (at least I think it is this) is also still squeaking quite a bit (particularly on startup and for few mins after). Also notice when changing gear and first re-engaging the clutch??)
