My Ride: 2001 Black 330CI
Diagnose: Engine Click

So yesterday I noticed this clicking noise when the engine is running...


A few weeks ago I had screeching but I fixed that by replacing...
Both Tensioners
Both Pulleys
Water Pump (Pulley Only w/ Aluminum)
Both Belts
... then everything was quiet and smooth.

A week ago my battery went dead at work (wouldn't go beyond click noise) so I got jump started by a VW then drove home. I bought a new battery and swapped it out. Car started right up fine all week and still starts fine.

What could be clicking?
Can the alternator wheel/pulley be clicking?
I had plans to replace the water pump first.
Could the Water Pump be clicking?
