Right, when i first got the car, i noticed the faint squeeking of the fan belt when the car was just cruising along (ie. foot off accelerator, boot off brake, for instance if ur on the motorway and going downhill).
So i thought, might aswell change the belt, so went to halfords, got the right one and went about fitting it.
Fitted it (knowing full well it would stretch and may need adjusting again).
Ran car about, and it started squeeking again
Anyways, had a go and tightening the adjuster even more today, which i think i have managed to do.
But it now screetches even more ?? And now more randomly, like accelerating, braking etc. Just randomly.
It has been said that Halfords fan belts are poop, althought i thought a belt was a belt?
Could it be halfords fan belts are crap?
How far up the adjuster should the nut/bolt be? There isnt a lot of play in the belt.
Any ideas, as its doing my nut in.
