Unhappy Getz 1.1 - Noisy engine

We have a 55 plate Getz 1.1 petrol. The mileage is 54500 . We went to start the car on Xmas day and noticed this noise coming from the engine compartment / fan belt area. The car still seems to run fine but we now have this noisy engine when before she was quiet.
Any ideas what could be the problem . I checked the oil.That was fine .
Thank you

What kind of noise?

If its a "squealing" noise, its probably one or all the belts that may need replacing. If this is the case, you can stop the squealing for a while with a couple of spritz of Son of a Gun or any silicone based rubber and plastic protectant. This is only a temporary solution. Your belts need replacing.

If its a "clicking" noise, its probably an oil lifter tappet (camshaft). It deserves a closer look by a qualified mechanic.

If its a "grinding" noise, then definitely needs checking by a qualified mechanic.

Other noises may come from loose "something" rattling against car's body or engine, like loose wire harness or such. Open hood with engine running and try to pinpoint the noise source.

six months ago I have noticed same strange sound of engine, went to mech, it seems that Getz has a fabric poor quality of timing belt lower pulley (smaller one) and the bolt is too short. As soon as I have changed it, the sound was OK as it was before
