    Vehicle : 57 zafira 1.9 cdti design

    Trim : design

    Engine : 1.9 cdti

    Year : 2008

    Default squeek on startup and shutdown

    i get a slight squeek like im throttling a budgie (hahahaha)...

    it also sounds like belt squeal but its only for about 1 second or less on startup ans shutdown..a mechanic said it could be the bottom pulley rubber starting to seperate but iv no idea..

    the aux belt is pretty much solid and i dont get any belt squeal at all appart from start/shutdown...

    any ideas?

    Sounds as though your aux belt and or tensioner is knackered. The bottom pulleys don't give any warning they just fail

    I had the same problem it started last winter. On investigation my tension pulley had failed (I’ve got a pic of my old one that failed somewhere, I'll post it) I changed the belt and tension pulley



    I think I got a new one from the bay of e for around £30 0r £40 squid?

    It failed where the bolt goes through the plastic bush/insert. The hydraulic piston had also seized.

    I dunno about the how 2 mate. I just removed my airbox, jacked the drivers side up, placed it on an axel stand, removed the D/S wheel, wheel arch and bottom plastic trim/sh@t shield. Then it's a case of two torq bolts. The top one is hard to get out a s there aint a lot of room.
