Thanks for yore respons

The oil nd filer have been changed but he noise is still the same. Where is the auxiliary belt tensioner an can it be adjusted. The noise seems to be high up in the engine and more towards the passenger side.

Noise is probably coming from the auxiliary belt tensioner, but first check that you have the correct grade of oil and a new genuine oil filter.
