If the belts are good the noise could just be the a/c compressor making noise. The compressor is the only thing that is not normally spinning until the a/c is activated and the a/c is activated by the defrost to dry the air. Cheapest thing to test is the belt I would replace the belt and if it is not the belt you can try the compressor. If it is the compressor then you have a extra belt to put on later.

Squeeling belts toyota avalon 2006

There are several possible reasons for this. The new belt may be the wrong size or have a different number of grooves cut into the belt. Some pulleys have more or less grooves which must match the number of grooves on any grooved pulley, even if only 1 pulley has the grooves.

Mounting the belt through different paths which makes slack in the belt.

Frozen or worn Belt tensioner which fails to put adequate tension on the belt. Idler pulley bearings can be worn out and new belt is now causing bearing to show up with noise.

When routing belt, make sure grooved part turns on grooved pulley and not the smooth backside of the belt.

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.

When i turn my toyota avensis a rattling noise comes from it , but when i turn on air con it stops or is not as bad ,seems to happen when i clutch too

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
