Toyota Tercel makes chattering sound

I have a 1998 Toyota Tercel with around 250,000 km that is making a chattering sound that seems to be coming from the timing belt side. Im thinking it could be the timing belt or a bearing or something like that. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Take a sound clip of the noise and post it here. We cannot tell without it.

I will definitely do that later today.
