Hi guys

Well we finally we managed to get to the bottom of the issue, the noise seems to be coming from the pully that is actually attached to the alternator itself. If anyone has the same issue (from cold, engage drive etc and get a groaning noise) get yourself a new pully that sits on the front of the alternator, it has a reverse slip clutch on it and seems to get worn out.
