    Default Help Squeek is driving me mad

    Just wondering if you can help. I had a bad squeek on my car when running from the aux belt.

    It is a 2.0T edition 100 vectra.

    After spraying the tensioner with spray grease it has gone off when on tick over but as soon as i start to accelerate it comes back.

    Could it be the tensioner needs replacing or would a new belt cure the problem?

    And if the tensioner doesn't cure it, it'll be the clutch pulley on the alternator.

    I agree with DaveW555. It will be the clutch pulley on the alternator.
    I had a similar annoying squeak. My alternator packed in and was replaced. Much to my surprise the squeak has also stopped completely.

    In fairness I always change all 3 if the clutch pulley has packed up as it doesn't half jerk the belt and tensioner about and its better safe than sorry.
