    noisey wheels and engine

    think i need some advice!! i brought my van last week, 1.7tdi 51 reg with 110k miles. the alloys where scratched so i took them off and put brand new ones on. Well i didnt but a alloy shop did lol. Ever since all i can hear is a very deep whining noise - very hard to explain but alittle like when u have a roof rack on but alot deeper noise. I also noticed this evening when i took the van for a drive of 3 miles i looked at the alloys and then felt them - they were very warm!! is this normal? I was kinda thinking that poss the alloy shop didnt put on the spacers? plastic ring things? or am i on the wrong direction.

    Also sounds like a belt is slipping when engine is cold, but not bad what is this?

    Please help,

    Bex

    1. Take the alloys back and get the shop to sort it. Don't worry about diagnosing it yourself.

    2. Is it a squealing noise? Or more like a "shhhhhhhhhhhh" noise? Mine does the latter. It's the auxiliary bely. I won't be worrying about it until it snaps.
