Ok.
I used a hearing scope to listen,and i can hear the same noise on the housing that the vaccuumpump is attached to and atn the same noise at the power take off attachment for the alternator...
I removed the alternator already and its ok.
I removed the serpentine belt tensioner and idle pulley.....both were a little bit dry so i greased the bearing(hence there is no parts available in my country) to see that would be any diff. In noise level....but it remained the same.
It is a squeeling/smooth scraping noise that started 2 monyhs ago.
It started low but it is noticable louder nowadays.
I tried the serpentine belt for noise by spraying WD40 on it while running.....no change.
I checked the A/C pulley too...nothing.
It is not from the coupled powersteering and waterpump neither.
To only thing i have not checked is the vaccuumpump.....
After this to me it has to be engine block related and not the take offs !!!
Can you advise me on this ???
I am an automotive and industrial technician for over 15 years trying to find a shortcut to repair my own car as fast as possible......lol !!
This is not funny and my wife is breathing in my neck about her car noise she doesnt like !!!..
This is my first 2007 volvo S80 3.2(B6324S) Fwd and has around 85k miles......137.000km on dial.

Hi the video is too large for me to send. Is there any other way for me to send it to you?
Auto Mechanic: Pete, Technician replied 3 months ago
