given that the belt relies on friction to turn the pulleys i would stop spraying wd40 on it, this isnt helping - try some talcom powder.

the belt could well be damaged by th wd40 so it might be worthwhile replacing it. make sure none of the pulleys are seized and maybe give them a very light clean up.

the belt is only 3 weeks old as i said its been modified as it has aircon pully ive never heard of talcom powder doing that whats the best thing to clean pulleys with thanks

ive used talcom powder on a few occasions, its not a permanent fix but it stops a belt squealing without damaging it.

i guess some wire wool or some fine emery cloth? just to break the 'glossy' surface up a bit?
