    Default Help with Chirping Noise

    Help!!

    Recently I have started getting what can only be described as a chirping noise when starting the car from cold, it seems to go away once engine has warmed up.

    So for the serpentine belt and tensioner has been replaced and the water pump has been replaced but the noise continues.

    Can anyone shed any light where to look next?

    there are 2 other idler bearings that could be making the noise

    I had the same thing and when i replaced them still had the noise in the end I took them off and lightly greased between the dust covers and the bearings (not actually where the belt runs on) it made the odd chirp for a day or two but it has now solved the issue i nolonger sound like i have birds under the bonnet

    I had the chirping sound on mine on tickover... Really got on my tits tbh, anyway,, after changing Auxilliary belt no joy, then auxilliary belt tensioner and no joy... Then changed the alternator and now it's gone.... 215 quid to get rid of that sound... Not pleased..
