    What sort of noise?

    09's did have lifter issues, so on start up its noisy until the oil gets enough pressure to push lifters!

    Not an issue with stator growl is it? Headlight bulb out?

    Just initial thoughts before tearing it down

    Maybe don't shit your third gear.

      Before you start tearing it apart make sure both the high and low beam of your headlight work - since you didn't describe the noise make sure your belt is tight or not too loose.
