I'd be grateful for any feedback...

Fiat Punto 60

R - Reg 77,000 miles

When i start the car up there is like a loud noise( A tapping noise) coming from the timing belt I think. This goes when the engine is warm.
Ive checked both belts and they seem fine, but im now wondering that one of my belts is slipping????? Not sure.... I also get like a funny noise coming through the car like a skreetching noise when the engine is cold this happens when i am actually driving, this also goes when the engine is warm... Not sure what the problem is...... Checked haynes and still not sure...

Any ideas guys and girlies????

Tensioner very easy simply buy a timing belt kit for around 20 quid, i would do cam belt at same time but if not just unbolt the one bolt holding the tensiner on and replace with new one.
