LAND CRUISER 2006 Grinding engine noise Sign In

Hi all,
I have Toyota LAND CRUISER 3.0 D-4D 2006 and
recently I noticed noise near engine like something is grinding, it is loudest on front left side.
After starting car it didn't make that sound but when I drive it for few minutes it starts to make that noise and even if I turn it off and on again it makes that noise.
Did anyone have any similar problem or can suggest what could be wrong?

Here is short video

IDK but it was noisier than I would care for.
Noises are tough at best over the web. Try anyway, take the belt off and spin each item that will free spin for noise or feel that it isn't good.
If you can't pin point it AYOR to keep driving it since I/we don't know so far.
From there a shop with a tech familiar with these to hear it and put up overhead maybe get some better ideas or nail down what it is,

That sounds like a loose timing chain to me. Don't let that go too long or it can get real serious.
