    MY 1.4 A140 IS MAKING A NOISE!

    The best way to describe it is its the same noise as a remote controlled car as it powers forward.

    the noise is there when stationary with the engine running but not very loud, the more i put my foot on the gas the louder it gets....any ideas before a garage rip me off??

    Hubby said just get rid of it with that and the air bag light which he STILL hasnt sorted....i dont want to - i love my car!! he seems to think its the gearbox but no issues with gears and the noise is always there

    thank you! x

    Poly V belt tensioners would be my best guess, if it is, not a very expensive job.
