Unhappy SHHH SHHH SHHH Noise coming from belt area

Hi everyone, I'm new to posting on this forum but have been checking this site every time something is up with my Astina

Basically at the moment I am hearing a SHHH or CHHH noise coming from the belt area in my 97 Astina BA - and it is driving me mad as I cannot seem to figure out what is wrong. The belts don't seem to be loose but I wouldn't have a clue PLEASE HELP!!!

Nah not a squeaking or squealing noise its almost like a belt is rubbing against something it's a "CHHH, CHHH or SHH SHH" noise most discomforting. No incidents I have had have caused this it just started happening one day.

Have a look if it is rubbing against the plastic timing belt covers. These tend to warp a bit with age and can come into contact with the water pump belt. Also check if there are bits of gravel stuck on the inside of the water pump belt. You can usually see a hump on the outside of the belt where the rock has been squeezed through by the pulleys.
Failing that it could be your water pump bearing saying ccchhhhange meeee ccchhhange mmmeeee!
Had its 100k service?
