OK, starting to come to terms with the new Volvo V50 1.8S now, I'm generally very happy with it for the money, but there are a few 'teething' things that I guess are to be expected on a 62K mile car.

This question relates to what can best be described as a pinking noise from the driver side area in the engine bay. I'm quite sure it isn't actual 'pinking' because it doesn't sound as if it's coming from the engine itself, and isn't always linked to the engine being under load. The noise is intermittent and most prevalent when the engine is warm. It isn't there on tickover, only when driving.

I am happy to live with it if it isn't a sign of a more serious problem that needs attending to. I would like to take it back to the dealer (non franchise) I bought the car off as he had given a 3 month warranty, but would prefer to do so with a bit of knowedge so as not to be fobbed off.
