2003 Ibiza probs - bimmer-driver
Was wondering if anyone can help me out with my 2003 1.2 SEAT Ibiza. The first thing is that if the engine is under any load at less than 2000 rpm it sounds as though the fan belt slipping. This goes away if you switch the air con on- but surely the fan belt wouldn't slip at 3 yrs old and less than 30000 miles would it?
The second thing is if you leave the car locked for any length of time and then unlock it, as soon as you open the drivers door theres an electrical whirring noise that seems to come from under the car somewhere for about 2 seconds. Anybody got any ideas what it is? Its not really a problem, but its annoying the heck out of me because I don't know what it is.
Thanks in advance.

The whirring is the fuel pump firing up - normal.

Sounds like a belt slipping

"but surely the fan belt wouldn't slip at 3 yrs old and less than 30000 miles would it?"

Yup it can.
