Engine is OM646 Evo 2.2 with a full history and 122k covered.

Is the noise in the attached video normal prior to cranking? When you turn the ignition on this process starts and lasts 20-30 seconds. My gut feeling is that it's pressurising the fuel rail and perhaps purging air. The noise comes from the black slatted plastic pipe fitting near the 4th injector pipe seen in the video but it strikes me as odd that this lasts so long and what a bizarre noise!!??

Thanks in advance

Don’t recall having it on my 320cdi but it was a long time ago - so maybe a fault.

That sounds like a fuel flow noise possibly. Use a screwdriver to your ear to pin point it.

Make sure you get the screwdriver the right way around
