    It's always hard to conclude anything from these videos as the mic mobiles phones is not very good. I;m assuming its the noise towards the back of the engine you are talking ??

    So assuming that is correct, just thinking it through, the only thing that stops at the back of the engine when the aux belt if off is the power steering fluid.

    With no aux belt PS pump isnt running so no fluid being pumped around the power steering rack.

    Do you have any noise coming from the steering rack when you turn the steering wheel ?

    I have another listen when Im at home later. Crappy earphones aren't helping much.

    If the removing the aux belt takes the noise away, then you need to check all the pulleys that the aux belt drives. So check the tensioner pulleys, alternator, powersteering, A/C pump etc. See if any of these make a noise when spun by hand or if they seem to have any play in them.
