bad bearing crunching sound from 1.9d DW8 engine, any ideas?

For some time ive noticed when listening to the engine idling, or at any rpm, there is this nasty crunching sound, sounds like a bad dry bearing,
it sounds like rocks inside a bearing instead of metal balls.
the sound seems like its coming from the fuel pump area mounted on the front of the engine, altho it could be coming from the valve cover area.
the sound goes with the engine rpm, if that helps.
its just a matter of time before it fails so id like to sort it.

Try taking the fan belt off, see if the noise goes away

i fitted a new alternator from the bay, so it can't be her making the noise.
i checked all the fan belt pulleys for wobbleage, all seem good, except they are all out of line for some reason. anyway..
i think the sound is actually coming from inside the engine itself!  shame, she has a good heart!
