I hear a crackling noise after I get to my biting point @ First Gear. I have heard of this noise before but not in all the cars. My car has only done 43000 miles to the clock and has a good condition. Although it's a 1.1L car (i.e. it's gonna move like a slug), the crackling noise is not a normal thing right?

It turned out to be my drive belt. I replaced it, costed it quite a lot from Halfords. The car is gone due to an accident recently, but that is unrelated to this problem. THe issue was fixed after I replaced the drive belt. Usually 43k-44k is the standard change time for fan belts I think.

  • Glad to hear that the accident was not because of the drive, those are nasty crashes;) Dec 15 '15 at 15:31
