Engine noise video clip

Hi, could anyone give me advice on downloading a short video clip as my engine has a nasty noise which happened yesterday.
I have tried to post it ( choose file, then uploaded file from my gallery) but no luck.
I had to upload a video clip of a nasty noise just before Christmas. Created a Youtube account, then posted link in the thread, took about 10 minutes.
This does not sound like a good noise from that clip. Get the car to a specialist to have it checked over before you drive it very much further. I would say it is potentially severe enough to take immediate notice.

Ideally, I wouldn't run the car at all, better to get this one checked out than I take guesses and scare you too much
The car had the IMS done 2000 miles ago and the noise wasn't gradually so it cannot be bore scoring (hopefully not).
To me it sounds like a bearing.
Yeah, does sound like a bearing IMHO, or maybe the water pump which is another weak point.

Hopefully our resident mechanic Iain will offer his more skilled opinion :worship:
You could pop the serpentine belt off and run it again, this will help identify it if is an internal or external issue.
Did you manage to diagnose this??
