    Default Small squeak from engine belt - cdti 120

    Evening everyone!

    My 2004 cdti 120 has a squeak coming from one of the engine belts.
    I can only hear it for a very short time if the engine is labouring eg pulling away in 2nd gear at fairly low revs, or changing into a high gear at low revs.
    I cannot hear it when i'm driving normally, it's just sometimes annoying when i'm pulling away from a junction!
    As i said, it's only for literally a second until the revs build up.

    I've heard it could be the grooved auxillary belt and that maybe vauxhall have a new type of belt that doesnt make a noise?

    Anyway, should i be worried about this noise? Is it likely to be anything more serious? Or should i just live with it?

    Cheers for the help

    From a new vectra owner who thinks this site is great. Well done everyone!

    It more than likely is, just the auxilary drivebelt or it's tensioner..if you're mechanically adept it's not too hard to swap it over for a new one...it involves removing the undertrayto get access under the driverside end of the engine.. then using a 15mm spanner to move the sprung loaded tensioner over , out of the way.. then just swap the belt back on...make sure it sits properly in the gooves on all the pulleys....then just refit etc..
