Question about Daihatsu Charade

I'M GOING TO GUESS (ONE MAIN BELT)...SERPENTINE, AND THE TENSIONER IDLER PULLEY IS BINDING...NOT ENOUGH TO SMOKE THE BELT, BUT TO MUCH PRELOAD ON THE ALTERNATOR BURNING UP BEARINGS

How long does the belt last, and is it wearing off on the edges? With the belt off I would check all the rest of your acessories for no side play and they should all turn very easily. Also what engine does your car have? Is it the 2.3L 4 cyl? Thank you for using fixya.com

The squeal when first started is most likely coming from the alternator belt. You need to have the tension of the belt checked to make sure it is properly adjusted. If you had a shop due it have , have them recheck it. Or stop by a local shop and they shouldnt charge you to check it. But its all in how you ask, if you go in and tell them your problem most likely they will try to get you for a fee to diagnose it.Just ask to have them check the belts and make sure there tight.If its ok, has anyone tried to fix your sqeul by spraying anything on it? if so your belt could be slipping from the lube they used. there is one more thing you can try, providing all the pullys/ tensioner pully if equiped are straight. If it is a serpantine belt(flat/multiple grooves) not A v-belt
when the engine is off,you take a tablespoon or so of corn starch, yes the stuff in the yellow box in the kitchen, and put it on the inside oif the belt. Its acts like a dry lube. I learned this trick at the GM dealership, from a factory bu;lliton. good luck

I had the same problem, repeatedly for more than a year. Turns out that the first time the belt broke and was replaced, something in the piece that the belt raps around was moved very slightly out of line. The mechanic told me that the piece has to eb calibrated perfectly; otherwise the belt will keep loosening and breaking. The piece--I think it was the bracket (or whatever) on the water pumpt that holds the belt onto the pump--was reclaibrated, and, voila! No further problems, at not yet.
