    Default sqeal from pump 3.2 v6

    just got back from a 70 mile round trip and have now noticed a squeel from the left hand side ( looking under the bonnet) . could it be waterpump or air con pump bearings?
    only just started today didnt use it yesterday, but had a/c on today.

    I have the same issue I think. My guess is the tension pulley needs replacing, but I can't be sure. It's usually there when I start up the engine. It will stop for a bit and come back when I accelerate. I hear the noise better when driving with the window down. Only problem I can't 100% determine if it is the tensioner pulley or something inside around the timing belt system. Also looking for how to repair this if a manual exists for the 3.2L V6 (Built Oct'03). Any advice would be great!

    Try a couple of squirts of WD40, see if it goes away? If its a dry bearing the squeel should go away until the WD40 dries off.
