Hi, I went to go for a drive earlier when I noticed a very noticeable sound clunking away in the engine bay...it sounds like it is coming from the big fan or somewhere near there, any idea's what it could be ?.....sound's terrible !? ???

Please reply asap

I though it could be the large fan...But it doesn't appear to be catching on anything, anyone have a clue what else could be making this noise ??

Not sure as I had mine done with a load of other stuff.
If I get 10 mins tomorrow I'll hunt out the bill.
I think I paid 20-30quid for the fan and then fitting.

The seriously damaged belt that u haven't changed has probably started ripping apart more and it's spinning round hitting things and if u leave it long enough it can get wrapped round lower crank and cause timing belt to snap.

AC BELT REMOVED !!

The seriously damaged belt that u haven't changed has probably started ripping apart more and it's spinning round hitting things and if u leave it long enough it can get wrapped round lower crank and cause timing belt to snap.




I removed the AC belt today...and after fixing the knocking sound I will remove the rest of the AC install..

But to be clear thats no longer a problem/hazard :) - Martin.
