GRINDING WHEN ACCELERATING

2000 Citroen Saxo • Manual • 70,000 miles

When I accelerate, I get a grinding noise coming from just under the bonnet on the drivers side. When I coast and take my foot off the accelerator, the noise stops but when I come to a complete stop, my car cuts out. When I parked, smoke appeared and smelt rubbery.

Check the serpentine (alternator/power steering) belt and tensioner
