    Default 2.2dti Squealing on start-up

    My 03 plate 2.2dti sri has developed a really annoying squealing from the alternator on start-up and when wheel is turned to full lock, I am assuming that the belt needs changing, has anybody got any experience of changing the belt or advice as to the best way to do it.
    Cheers,
    Tommy K

    If its squealing on full lock it is the power steering that is causing the squeal, putting extra load on the belt. Look at the multiple v's on the belt, they can tend to crack but it's normally glaze on the belt that causes squeal. Shouldn't be too difficult to change, just loosen the tensioner and off you go, this is the layout.
