Complete newbie here, my wife's Ka has developed a problem, it squeals and screeches all the time, even when warm, dry or wet. I think it might be either the altenator or maybe the water pump??? any ideas?
To me it sounds like the fan belt but they don't exist anymore so I am assuming its the belt that drives the altenator, had a look under the bonnet and nearly died of shock,., do ford use spider monkeys to assemble the cars heh heh there is no room for me to get my big fat hands anywhere near the altenator,
Can anyone help me out by suggesting a course of action ( what to do/remove so I can get to the altenator bolts) other than using child labour to reach into the engine bay or a garage, if it's just a case of tightening the altenator belt up I should be able to manage lol
I appreciate the help
