Squeak / Squeal from engine bay area of a 2009 plate

Hi, I have a 2009 plate Aygo and at certain revs or going over a bump I get a squeak / squeal front the front. 

I noticed today with the bonnet up while it was idling while it was doing it if I pressed down with a little force of the airbox it would stop.

Is it possible for an engine mount to squeak / squeal?

It sounds like a light belt squeal noise but obviously can't be a belt if it stops when I press on the airbox...

 

Thanks

Will take a look but it's hammering it down right now lol.

 

At first I thought it was the springs holding the exhaust onto the cat/downpipe but they seem nice and tight and surely pressing down on the engine wouldn't stop them squeaking?

It could be anything.  Personally, I think this is worth a try:

Just tap around the engine until you can isolate the noise.

You can do that with a long screwdriver pressed to your ear.
