Hopefully i can help..
Is this noise your hearing still present when the cars stationary and the engine running/revved up etc?
what engine type/size do you have?
Any issues as per warning lights or overheating as such?
No, only happens uphill towing caravan, at the top of the hill the noise disappears.
Hi..there thanks for your reply..
Normally any issue with the water pump/alternator even bearing wise would certainly show up with the car stationary and at idle,revved up maybe - you would hear that for sure aswell as if the water pump there would be at least some kind of increase in temp as you travel up hill underload if the water pump was failing..If thats not the case in your situation i cant really see it being them to be honest.you can certainly check the belt itself for the alternator and see if it slack etc.It certainly sounds more transmission/tranfersbox/clutch related as per travelling up hill.its hard to say without actually hearing in peson and trying to listen and locate the exact area the noise emits from - the only thing that might be worth doing is maybe getting the fluid changed in those see what condition the oils in..I do hope this helps
