Your local mechanic would be able to change the belt for you, it is not an expensive repair. If you are going to attempt the job yourself ensure you look at the configuration before removing the old belt, I would suggest you draw yourself a picture of the set up before removing the old belt. When you have removed the old belt spin the pulleys to ensure you dont have a noisy one causing the problem. Be sure to have the correct tools before attempting the job. If you don't have the tools then it is not worth attempting the repair yourself.

My 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS squeals loadly when I start the engine and the fan is on in the car. I turn of the fan and it stops. After driving I turn the fan back on and don't get the squeal anym


Almost certainly one or more of the drive belts (not the timing belt) on the engine needs an increase in tension. It may tell you about this in the owner's handbook.

If not you can either ask a mechanic to do this straightforward job for you, or try it yourself. You can download a zipped service manual from here

and look these belts up in the charging section and steering section.

My2002 avalon has 60000miles of very normal driving. Do you think I can wait another 10000miles before changing the belt?


At your own risk. Timing belts are only rated for 60000miles but have seen them go much longer. you do roughly 7500miles a year, i would be of the opinion that u should change the belt due to age and miles at 65000.

Avalon almost have the same design as benz..most likely you need to change the belt tension..that why it making that rattling noise..because the belt tension it weak..and check all the pulley while changing you belt good luck

How do you change the alternator belt on a 2002 toyota avalon xls


There are two bolts on the alternator:
One holds it in position on a rail to adjust belt tension and the other mounts it to a brace. Loosen both of these and angle the alternator to release the belt tension and remove the belt. Put the new one on and reverse your removal technique. You want the belt taut, but not tight. If it squeals when it's running, just adjust the tension to make it a little bit tighter.

Regards,
matt

'96 Toyota 4-Runner makes a loud squealing noise and brake light


Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

Help! Air conditioner causes squeal soon after turned on


The ac is belt driven, If one of the belts are loose it will make a squealing noise. Turning on the air puts more strain on the belts. If this is the case all you would have to do is tighten the belt or belts. This would probably take a service tech just a few minutes. Probably under $100.00 dollars..........
