    Squeaky squeaky... What is it!

    Car has just started sqeaking!!

    It's quite loud and seems to be coming from under airbox and alternator area. To dark to dig any deeper.
    Happens when there is little or no acceleration?
    Could this be alternator belt or something or is it more serious

    Is it more of a squeal than a squeak? cause if it is then its more than likely to be your belt or it could be a bearing of some description (Alternator, A/C(if fitted), water pump, tensioner/idler (The latter being on the timing belt side of things) failing.

    Yeah sort of squealy really annoying noise. Belt and tensioner were fitted about this time last year and have done about 10000 on it. A/C is knackered anyway not sure of everything else. Think it's a job for national Tyres?

    Slacken off the fan belt and remove, (Note where the belt runs though)
    Turn and play with each bearing (obvious the crank wont turn by hand) and check for noise or play. Alternator seems to be most likely one though.
