Question about 2006 Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai elantra 2006 Squealling but stops when applying breaks.

Hi my Hyundai Elantra, 06 is at 37000 miles. I am getting a high pitched squeal noise most of the time, not all the time but goes from low squeal to very high and when i step on the break even just apply slight pressure to the break IT STOPS, and returns with release of the break. It also goes away when turning the wheel or going down hill. I dont know if its my breaks or the Serpintine Belt, i heard it could be either one. its been about 4 weeks since i heard the squeal and its getting worse, i am taking it in tomorrow but wanted be able to direct the tech as to what it might be. they dont seem to be receptive to finding a problem...long story.

I have an '05 Elantra (40,000 miles) with the exact same problem. Took it in to the dealer, and they said my rear brakes needed to be cleaned and adjusted. I haven't gotten it fixed yet, but the squealing has been less frequent since they looked at it. they must have cleaned it a little just by poking around.

Easiest way first.....if the belt is squealing (at idle), spray it with belt dressing or WD-40.....if it stops....may be the belt or the bearings in the alternator....if it continues only with driving.....brake wear indicator letting you know...brake job due!

Please let me know if this helps!!!

2010 Elantra, started with a high pitched sound turning left. Did that for a few days, then started when turning right. Now same noise is cooming for about 10 seconds. Not immediately on start up but


You may need to check the belts on your car's power steering section. Make sure the belts are tight and not worn out. Check for cracks on the belt and if loose, tighten it. There is also a product called Automotive belt dressing that you can spray on the belt to make it stick more easily to the pulley it is supposed to turn.

I drive a 2006 hyundai elantra with around 30,000 miles on it and lately there has been a rattling noise coming from the engine bay. It happens around 2000 rpm and only in drive. I narrowed the noise down...


This sounds like a bad pulley, maybe bearings in the waterpump or alternator, you will need to remove belt and spin each pulley to locate and also check for a loose pulley.
