    Default My Scenic is Singing?

    Hi:
    About 15,000km ago I replaced all the belts and pulleys and recently replaced the tensioner pulley. Not long ago the fan belt started to sing- quite an awful melody and very high pitched. I brought some belt spray and it stopped the squeal for two days now it's back worse than ever. It's the belt not the pulleys. Is it a matter of buying another new belt and do some belts make more noise than others?

    cheers

    It would be most remarkable that a belt could make such a racket on it's own. To verify this, remove the belt, place it in a quiet area and listen carefully for a few minutes. If the awful melody is not apparent, suspect that somehow it's interaction with the pulleys may be the cause.
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............
