SOURCE: My Mazda 323F (Protege in the US) 1.8 2000 had a squeaky belt for months then one night changed to a whirring - almost grinding noise - then a few miles later the engine cut out and won't start. No si
Yes i would also think that the water pump would turn, sometimes easier one way than the other with belt on. Maybe the bearing is froze? squeal could have been alternator also? possible timing belt tooth jump from frozen water pump, but not to likely. sounds like a hunt and narrow down job.
