    Default Squealing from cold - aux belt

    Afternoon all,

    Each morning my car (2.2dti) is squealing from cold start so straight away i thought belt.

    Seems like its the aux belt.

    So gonna change it any idea on cost and is it recommended changing tensioner and pulley or will i get away with just the belt.

    Ta

    Steve

    I changed the aux belt on my 150 when i did the cambelt. The aux belt was £20 so got my mate at his garage to get a pattern part for about £9 .

    On another note, are you sure it's the aux belt and not the water pump making the noise? If you're sure then, as you said, change the tensioner on the aux belt too

    Change the pully mate, i had exactly the same problem. It'll be about £40. Its an oil filled damper and it eventually seizes

    My 3.0 was doing this, just got them to change the belt £40 for just the belt. Over £100 with the tensioners. Been fine ever since
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
