    Default Squealing Noise

    Hello all,

    I am now using my bike 3 times a week, so my 2.2dti is standing still for a large chunk of the week.

    I noticed when i started it up yesterday there was a squealing noise much like you get when your fan belt is slipping. It went after a minute or so, do you think its the fan belt or someting else.

    I have an 03 2.2dti elegance, 42k on the clock

    Regards

    Surely the fans are electric and not belt driven?

    Yes they are but there is an aux belt that drives the alternator etc.

    had exactly the same problem, ignored it, squeal went away, 6 months later returned and 3 days after that (today) my alternator died.
