Is it as loud as it seems, or does it low enough that it disappears when you close the hood?

The tapping is normal, as long as you can't hear it with the hood closed too much, and definitely you shouldn't hear it in the car. It's the high pressure fuel injectors.

Sounds normal to me. Injectors and high pressure fuel pump.

Just so I understand, you are hearing both noises, correct? There’s ticking (which I understand to be the valves/injectors) and then there’s this whine/grind/whistle. Are you saying that second noise is a normal high pressure fuel pump?

Here is a different shot with how loud it is with the hood closed. It sounds like maybe a bad bearing on a pulley?

Yes mine doesn’t make that noise. You can hear the injectors but that knocking sound is foreign

You're on a spare tire, you blew a hole? looks like you damaged your right suspension mate.

That’s not a leak but my arm rubbing on a dusty strut. I knew someone would catch it. Waiting for new wheel hence the spare. Have driven it 1 mile with it.
ohhh i see, that's good then :) hehe

I hear that lower-pitched 'whirring' in the first, open hood video. It does sound like a bearing. If it increases in speed/frequency at higher RPMs; you may know for sure.

It does increase with higher rpms. Will be removing the belt today and starting the car to know for sure. Going to replace the tensioner bearing to start with since that’s the cheapest.
