    Default Engine squeal on startup

    Hi guys
    Starting to get a very brief (2-3 seconds) squeal when i start the engine, it goes then straight away. Have read that it could be the auxilary belt or tensioner? Before i start spraying belt slip or wd40 about are these easy parts to change for a novice or would i be better off taking it to a garage?

    cheers!

    That all depends or your own abilities with spanners are you competent or not?

    Yes it's easy enough takes a little time and can save you a few quid.

    If you have no idea best pay for the labour to fit.
