Could be linked to the alternator if the lights flicker, it might be loose or might need a new belt but I'm not 100%. I'm sure someone will come along that will know more.

I have an extremley similar sound on start up occasionaly, but it disappears after 4 or 5 seconds.

I've checked everything over and nothing mechanically seems wrong, bit concerned though!

The above noise is back again, with a more regular knocking on top, can anyone help by listening to the following vids.

I'm sure it's loudest around the cambelt area.
oil pump chain, as already mentioned here.
you can hear it only when engine is idling. no worries though.

Hopefully will be this then, still going to get the car up during the week hopefully and have a look inside.

Thanks for the reply.
