On the cambelt side of the engine as I'm sure you are aware there are a lot of cogs and other items that hang off the engine such as the alternator/power steering pump/aircon pump etc. It could be any of these or the bottom pulley has come loose for some reason( it does happen, had to tighten one up for a friend) the best bet would be to try and narrow down where the noise is coming from i.e. top/bottom/front /back of that side of the engine.
