    Belt Squeal

    I just wanted to know if any body else has had a problem with belt squealing? I changed both belts and it did not fix the problem. So i did a little more looking and have determined it is coming from the AC belt. So I am getting ready to change out the pulley there in hopes that it will stop the noise.

    The squeal probably means that there is too much slack in the belt. Probably is the tensioner. Check the slack on the belt and try to adjust the tensioner as needed. Needs to be tight without a lot of play in the belt.

    It was tight but i will check it again. I want to pull it off again and see if i can feel anything with spinning the pulley by hand.
