Sc300 Fan Belt Noise

Recommended Posts

When I start my sc300 1996 the belt squills just at start up,just a chirp! then if I turn on the

ac and turn the wheels all the way to bind the belt it does it worst, I can drive it

and it does ok. I even pulled off the belt and replaced it and no change,But while

I had the belt off the pullys on power steering and ac turns freely. even the ten.pully

so any help please?

I have been told try changing the belt tensioner?

It just seems like if I crank it with ac on it really squills when the belt is under

the most load, As said above with ac off it still makes noise but just a churp then

no more unless the ac is on and turning and gasing on it a little.If I turn on the ac as I'm moving

it does fine it seems like the belt is just slipping for whatever reason...

more than likely it sounds like your car's way of telling you 'Im old my bones creek' dab your finger in some motor oil and grease the tensioner a little stay away from that alternator with that stuff though it will stop working if to much foreign substance gets in
