    Default squeal

    Just dropped the nipper of at his karate class, the car was stationary, engine running, with Drive engaged but foot hard on the brakes, soon as he opened the door to get out, the engine squealed as loud as hell for about 15 seconds, sounded like a fan belt on an old 80s car

    is there a fan belt on the 3.0 tdi Signum?

    hasnt done it on the way to and from shopping just

    also im getting a clonk on the front end (both sides according to the missus) when going over speed humps, not everytime though, and going very slowly on the carpark so its not speed that is causing it to clonk

    any ideas??

    I'd say the aux belt too, although the interior light won't cause it. More like all the lights and heaters etc. The clunk will most probably be the anti roll bar linksor bushes. All cheap fixes
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Had the same squeal from my V6 CDTI last year at about 19K miles. Dealer diagnosed excessive play in one of the belt pulleys, and replaced it under warranty. Haven't got a record of exact part, unfortunately. Symptoms were squeal on starting engine in wet weather from cold, disappeared as it warmed up. Hasn't recurred since pulley replaced.
