hello guys

recently my much loved 147 started rattling at startup and continues while driving sounds like a diesel now, also when driving there is a high pitched noise when changing gears and stays while driving also parked in neutral and rev up the high pitched noise is there. i have tried to locate the noise sounds like its from the engine near the black cover i think its where the cam is.. any ideas what it could be much appreciated. (sorry for the lengthy post)

can you record this noise & post it up on YouTube?
when was the timing belt last changed? what miles on the clock?
Also, if in doubt stop driving this car before it decides to stop.

I bought the car about 2 months ago mileage is 84000 at the minute I will record the sound later on and post the link on here.

at idle, does pressing the clutch alter the sound in any way?
