I hadn't thought of the noise being related to the thrust bearing in the gearbox. The
noise in question can only be heard from outside. Perhaps I'll try with the window down.
Did I read somewhere that the engine is also used in the mini cooper s ?

Did you have any luck with this, my 2015 208 makes a similar noise and stops when the clutch is preseed. Otherwise its fineHi there, I don't know if the problem I have is the same as in this post, but here goes. About 7 months ago I bought a 2013 XY 1.6 THP with 32000 which had a full service history. I use it to commute 26 miles a day, after about 3 months it was noisy on start up then after about a mile it went away, this was diagnosed as timing chain and this was replaced under warranty and the car appeared ok. Because I have been furloughed from work I have not used the car much but now when you sit at idle the car has a lumpy noise which you can hear inside and out of the car, when you depress the clutch it goes away and comes back when the pedal is released. I was wondering if this had any connection with the timing chain replacement, my warranty does not cover clutches and I haven't been able to return it to the garage I bought it from so have had no advice, I wondered if someone could help me please. As a final note the car has always had hesitation during hard acceleration I put this down to lack of use but it still seems to be there, thanks in advance.
