Hi All,
Just noticed while the engine is ticking over and increases with revs a slight knocking which i think could be coming from the water pump....will the pump make this kind of noise if it is ready to fail ??..Thanks Webber

there's the tensioners down there aswell, check the belts by hand for large nicks / flat spots that will cause a 'slapping' when they run over the pulleys, also check the pulleys for front / back movement then turn the pulleys with a rachet on the alt pulley and see if the noise is repeated at slow speed
