    Squeal.....?

    Have noticed a squealing noise coming from my Astra when driving.

    Its no the normal fanbelt squeal when cold, but a squeal that is there all the time, sometime quiet but can get louder when i step on the loud pedal...?

    What do we think fan belt or cambelt? its supposedly just had a new cambelt so could it possibly not be tensioned correctly?

    Thanks

    when I had my garage i used to get calls like this all the time.. the only way to be sure is to have a mechanic look and listen to it.. we can only guess, given the info submitted

    To eliminate the drive belt noise put a drop redex on the inner run of the belt. If the noise stops right away you will know for sure.
