United-Kingdom Another fault has arisen!!

Further to the ABS/Tyre pressure lights and CV joint clacking problems on my 2002 Mini One, another couple of niggles have arisen...

First one is a heavy hissing/shushing noise which is intermittent but only from cold. When I drive off and let off the throttle, irrespective of road speed, the noise appears for about a second then stops. At first I thought it was coming from the rear but as it is getting a bit more frequent, I have noticed it is coming from the front. Maybe more to the right which would suggest a bearing of some sort - drive belt tensioner???

The other one was when I started it today, a tappet was happily ticking away. Drove to my bank to get some Wonga out and just as I pulled in to the 'toast rack' outside the bank, the tappet finally fell silent. Drove fine on the way home though, so maybe just one of those things. Oil level looks OK.

Beginning to wonder what I've bought!! even though it was only 1300 with 122k on the clock.
