'squeek' When In Too High A Gear.

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm finding i've had a bit of an annoyance when I happen to be in too high a gear for the current revs.

If I for example, change to third gear maybe 3-4 seconds too early, and likewise in all gears, I hear quite a high pitched squeek that sounds a bit like a none-oiled cog turning.

The noise seems to come from drivers side but I can't work out if it's infront of me or behind me.

It's annoying me loads, any ideas?

Paul

Fan belt like artscot said. Same thing happened with my old diesel Astra. A way to prove that it's the fan belt would be to rub dried soap on the belt and see if it temporarily goes away. If it does, you need a new belt.
