    If only to rule things out, I'd be looking at the alternator pulley, water pump, power steering pump and the air con compressor (if fitted).
    For the alternator, PAS and air con, we would run the engine with the drive belt off, just to see if the noise vanishes.

    Don't know if they suffer from loose crankshaft pulleys - PSA cars do.
