General strange clutch noise

Aug 20, 2007
hey guys, noticed this noise the other day. It doesnt come on all the time only sometimes. Basically when im cuming to a stop theirs a whirring noise cuming from the engine and when i push my clutch all the way to the floor before stopping it goes away. what do you think this is? thanks.
Yeah, its the cambelt tensioner that makes the noise, i wouldint worry about it if you have a 1.2 8v since its a safe engine, but if you have a 16v engine i would replace the belt and tensioner right away, it can break up and cause severe engine damage to the un-safe engines, but even if you have the 8v you wouldint wanna be left stranded some where if it fails on you.
