Sounds like it may be one of the idler pulleys on the engine. I recommend we remove the belt and spin all of them to see if any make noise or are rough to spin. We can also start the engine without the belt to see if the noise is still there. Let me know.

i have changed belt yesterday and the pulleys too. noise still there. sound is coming from that grey metalic end/corner.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Did you replace all the idlers? Does the noise go away if you run the engine with no belt?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
dont know if it disapears without belt, but changed all, mechanical thinks its hydraulic pump, but sound comes from head. what is shown in my video.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Yes it does sound like it is from that area. Obviously that is not a factory setup but I think we should remove the belt and make sure the noise is still there.
