According to the workshop the noise remains when the car is running without the aux belt.
I'm gonna see for myself this afternoon (double or tripplecheck)
I've suspected the water pump but since it was changed att the last cam belt change 4 years ago and 40000km's it should be alright.
Because the workshop told me that the noise remained even without the aux belt I told them not to change the water pump since that had been done not long ago.
Turning the A/C on or off doesn't change the sound, probably coz the system is empty and the compressor won't start.
P/S pump has it's little nagging noise that it usually has but I've changed the fluids in that one to VW's own P/S fluid which made the pump a thousand time happier. Noise doesn't alter when turning the wheel either so i suspect it's something other than the P/S pump.
Thanks for the suggestions - Keep em coming!
Don't forget the simple stupid little quirks that can leed to strange noises, I'm trying to start with the easiest things this time around since it doesn't appear to have made a difference to change the "normal" things..
After all I'm not an over-paid blue-blooded lord of this-and-that.
