Unhappy noise and worries!

Thanks for that -yes a 1.6 but how can I tell if it has the vvt engine? The noise is still there up to just above 3k revs. ( there is talk of the noise dissapearing after warmup / crusing)Do you know if the dephaser only affects the vvt engines? The Fidji model is what I have, when I bought it new - there was no mention of the vvt engine! Years ago I remember a similar noise from an altenator pulley (Ford escourt)..... If it turnes up to be this pulley thing, then I shant be getting a new senic as I was planning -might go for a Citroen instead! hope you can help!
Currently in andyt's garage:
Honda VFR Fi-01 800i - the renault is happy, but the Bike is more important!
