Frayed cambelt or aux belt; something flapping on a placcy cover.

I Agree.

It is a rubber/plastic sound.
It does not sound like a bearing.

Very, very carefully use a stick/bar to the ear to locate area sound is coming from.

First thing I'd do is free; remove the two 10mm bolts holding the top cover over the timing belt and check that bugger for fraying - it's only 17mm wide to begin with. :eek:

Did you ever find the cause?

Thanks.
