    Question Squeek from 2.2 direct engine - anyone else suffer?!

    When my car hit about 10k it started squeeking from under the bonnet when at low revs (1000-1500rpm) but under a bit of load. I suspected alternator belt tensioner and it went into stealers under warranty and they changed the tensioner.

    4k down the line its doing it again and they tell me it's a characteristic of the engine as the revs are too low the tensioner doesnt tension properly. Told them what i thought of the explanation saying why didnt it do it from new and why did it stop for 4k when they fitted a new one and why doesnt my dads one with double the milage do it!

    They agreed to change tensioner and belt again, just wondered if anyone else has this problem?! Really its when you roll around a corner say at a roundabout in 3rd and then accelerate.

    Hi Mate

    Any more updates on this?

    I've got a 56 plate 1.9 CDTi 150 and its doing exactly this, I've searched the forum and your the only person to have mentioned these kind of symptoms even though it is a different engine.

    They did change the tensioner & belt again and once again it was fine for a few thousand miles but then back. Let me know if you have any joy!
