How do i stop my belt from squeaking?
Yesterday i changed out my alternator in my 98 honda accord ex v6 car. The haines repair manual says i can not adjust the belt tension and it is automatic for the v6 model. Ever since i changed the alternator theres been a slight squeaking noise on the belt that runs with the alternator. I inspected the belt before putting in the new alternator and it looked fine. So what could be causing this or what can i do to elimated this noise? Its not extremly loud but its there when the rpm is at idle or when driving 0-30. When the rpms are up or while driving faster then 30 the noise goes away.How do i stop my belt from squeaking?Try changing belts with a new one, and the belt tensioner. that should do it.How do i stop my belt from squeaking?your idler pully could be going bad....
