    Default squealing v-belt

    i have a 52 plate 2.2dti (for my sins) and have developed a bit of a squeal from the alternator etc v-belt on start up. the belt looks a bit glazed and is prob worn out and in need of replacing.

    is there any way of tensioning the belt in the meantime to stop the squeal?

    Save yourself the bother and just replace it, cos it will only start to squeal or maybe even snap if you just tighten it up.

    it's a sprung loaded tensioner... so you can't over tension it..

    if the belt squeals, replace it..
