Boxing Ant ideas what this screeching is?

my friend brought it to me as i have the only other 159 on camp, 159 friends

its a 1.9 diesel, he bought it last year with no service history. we could see the timing belt was done 3 1/2 years ago at 86,000. the car has now done 114,000 and was serviced 10,000 ago.

we're thinking high pressure fuel pump, it seems to be coming from the right hand side of the engine. it really is a piercing screech, actually hurts my ears lol.

apologies for the lop sided video

thanks in advance

If its the r.h.s can,t be belts. Clutch , release bearing , air leak, turbo maybe. Vacuum pump.
Get a stick place on engine put ear on stick while ticking over see if you can locate where the noise is coming from. /of wood acts like a stefescop.

Look for a leak on the exhaust manifold gasket.
