Loren, Sandy & Mark ... thanks for your suggestions & warnings.
Fortunately I can give the bonnet-open-climb-on-engine-while-moving exercise
a wide berth 'cos the noise is there when stationary (hmmnnn ... hadn't
thought of checking to see what happens when depressing the clutch though).
Yet to check for a loose c-shaft pulley but fixing this would be beyond my
"Hoping" it might be the a/c clutch since I have recently developed problems
with the a/c system.
I'll post results when I get to it ... first stage (11.50 pm over here) is
to read the manual ... even if it is only the Haynes version.
