In Topic: Belt Noise Or Something More?

01 February 2013 - 07:33 PM

Well as luck would have it the mechanic from the garage (family friend) just popped over to have a listen as the car has been stood all day.

It did it for about 15 seconds then disappeared, he's convinced its the power steering belt which is self tensioning and has said not to worry as it probably wont do it once the weather picks up a bit. The belt I supplied myself (Gates belt) and they're willing to replace it with another one for £10 if I want them to but he's adament its a waste of money due to the circumstances it does it and that its really nothing to worry about.

He also said its not really classed as a squeak and is more of a very intermittent chirp!

Does all this sound right? Should I bother getting it changed if this is the case?

Probably a silly question but would this be the Timing belt / Power steering belt or Aux belt that's slipping?

I forgot to mention too but it isn't loud either. If the door is shut then you can't hear it.....only if the door or window is open.
