My dad had his in at the dealers yesterday.

They heard the noise when they started it up yesterday but coudn't come to any conclusion what it was. After that they did some diagnostic tests on it and said that the alternator was not performing 100% so it could just be that under strain that was causing the problem. However they didn't think that the alternator was ready to be replaced so suppose we just need to put up with the noise untill it goes.
