Strange noise from cold

    Hi again.

    The S4 has developed another little niggle.
    Recently when starting from cold, I am getting a mettalic rattle between 1000 and 1800rpm.
    Hard to describe the sound really, like a sort of metallic squeal. Not really loud at the moment but noticable. Seems to disappear when the engine is nice and hot.
    Could it be a bearing in one of the pulleys. Cambelt is due to be changed in 3000 miles.

    Cheers, any help appreciated and merry christmas to you all:icon_thumright:
