    Did you replace the tensioner?

    I've only replaced this belt on a ford focus and the noise was actually coming from a failing tensioner. It may be the new belt is putting more stress on it (being new and not stretched).

    ...just a thought

    Certainly sounds like the tensioner, but if the belt is not a VX part it could also be the culprit. Personally (especially with the benefit of hindsight) I would change the tensioner as well as the belt and put a genuine belt on.

    Genuine belt all the way, the factor supplied belt seem to be made from a far harder, smoother material than the VX ones. First job is to put a VX one on , clean the crud off the pullies and see how that goes.

    sounds like belt slipping due to tensioner not working properly..... have you checked tensioner...it should take alot of pressure to move?
