I had the same problem. The clicking noise sounded like a worn bearing.
Noise started after I replaced the alternator / aircon belt.

Solution - replaced the belt with a genuine Hyundai belt.

One of pulleys makin a grinding and clicking sound

The bearings in the one of the pulleys is bad probably the idler pulley or the belt tensioner. If it has a lot of miles and they have never been replaced, do them both and a new belt.

Clicking sound near Idler pully

The bearing in the pulley is a single row ball bearing so you can expect a slight side movement in the pulley. Check the drive belt for cracks. Ensure that the belt is running at the top of the pulley and not down in the groove. Lastly if there is no other obvious problems then change the drive belt

Clicking sound near cambelt

It might be the idler pulley or automatic tensioner. When either one dries up, the bearing wears out and starts causing whistling or whining noises, might need replacing. Try replacing the cheapest one, the idler pulley to see if it stops. If not, it might be your belt tensioner.

Squeaking sound from fan belt

  • Take a can of brake clean and spray it on the belt while it is rotating. If the sound goes away for good it was a dirty or wet belt. If the sound goes away and come back it is more than likely a bad belt. Remove the belt and turn all the pulleys to see if they are spinning free. a stuck pulley can cause a belt to squeal too. If a pulley should catch a bit then perhaps the pulley could be part of the issue as well. Should all pulleys check good then put a new belt on. Don't forget to check the tension pulley for weak springs.

99 olds intrigue power steering belt very hot, I just replaced the power steering pump, it's makes a clicking sound and is getting very hot, sounds like it could be the steering colume.

remove the drive belt and check each pulley by hand for drag, or noise. Usually noises from the serpentine belt area are from the tensioner pulley, but since you installed a new PS pump I'd pay particular attention to that-also, watch the belt and pulleys for any 'wobble' too.

it sounds like you have a pulley alignment problem with one of the pulleys.did you have any left over washers or spacer not put back.the other problem is the belt tensioner may be worn and need replacing.these are the usual things that cause a belt coming off.if the belt is not on all the pulleys correctly it can throw a belt also.make sure there isn`t something(like a part of the timing cover)sometimes it doesn`t take much to cause this.

I have a 1987 Toyota Tercel Liftback. Today while drivving I heard a clicking sound from under the hood for about 2 seconds then the charge light came on. When the engine reaches high RPMs as in...

with the engine OFF, look at the belt(s) going to the alternator. it is probably loose. if so, then it is likely that the idler/ tensioner pulley is bad (the clicking is the bearings inside the pulley rattling around inside the pulley wheel) the clue is clicking + charge light ON.

If you hear a whistleing sound when you press on the gas peddle ? But after i put belt conditioner spray on the timing belt it sounds clear. but after a period of time the sound comes back

You might need a new belt, or the spring in the belt tensioner is weak and not holding the belt tight to the pulleys, in which case that will need replacing.

When i start the car, making loud squeaking sounds

do not add oil to belts. remove belt and spin all pulleys (except crankshaft pulley) any pulley does not turn freely (except crankshaft pulley) is where you will find your problem
