DID you loosen ALL the bolts. One or 2 on the top bracket, and one under pump which is difficult to see and must be felt to loosen.

The squeak is usually the result of a dry bearing. The repair can be quite easy. Make a very quick sketch of the belt and pulley arrangement before you start. Locate the securing nuts on the pulley and whist the belt is still on just loosen them,, do not remove. (leaving the belt on can help the pulley resist movement whilst you undo the securing bolts). Locate the tensioner idler pulley and using a suitable sized socket or spanner on the central bolt, rotate the pulley against the direction of tension to allow the belt. to be slipped off. Now return to the squeaking pulley and remove the bolts completely. Lubricate the pulley shaft and bearing with WD40 spray. Often this enough to return the pulley to years of silent running. To complete, reverse the steps above
