    Default Whinning belt

    Yeah, for me on my vectra C 2.2 dti 2002, some bad whining from the drive belt. Happens every morning or when it's really cold, full turn, reversing etc.

    I changed it the other day using the haynes manual and it all went away, less stuttering too on first start.

    Got a replacement belt for about a tenner.

    It's the 'Auxiliary Drive Belt', you could find some on fleebay. not sure exactly where it is on your engine, but when you do order one, make sure you get the right one, with/with out air con.

    Mine was located under the air box, had to remove this and my driver side wheel to get access.

    for me being a bit slow, about an hour, had some trouble putting the belt on because I couldnt loosen it and slip it on at the same time. Called my bro to help in which he just slipped it on while I held the tensioner to slacken/tighten it
