hi everyone,

my golf has suddenly today started whining really loud when idleing and get louder and higher as i rev the engine,

my imidiate thought was the water pump/ idle tensioner pulley/ alternator - so i whippied the aux belt off and run the engine but it was exactly the same?

so i put the belt back on and drove home, it completely stops when im on the gas, but starts whining again if im coasting or engagin the cluth to change gear.?

anyone that can shead some light on this one would be a big help> thanks in advance

had it looked at today, its the camshaft idler pulley. basically a cambelt change. not happy only done by main dealer 18 months ago at a cost of 600 bucks. unbeliveable. shoulda brought a beemer.
