Question about 2009 Chrysler Sebring
Changed alternator serpentine belt n pulley. Makes whining noise when idling or stop sign
Hi, Do as Bill suggests there is something alittle too tight and or seazing up. Check the A/C compressor is a common problem.
Also check the power steering pump for the whine noise. Add oil if needed. Lubricate the idoler pulley (Bearing). Good luck

REMOVE THE BELT AND TURN EACH COMPONENT BY HAND CHECKING FOR WOBBLE AND BINDING. DID YOU REPLACE THE TENSIONER ASSY OR JUST THE PULLEY?

The tensioner pulley is not turning??? Have you been burning up belts left and right?? Is the belt tight against the tensioner pulley?? You need to check to make sure that pulley is operating correctly. Are you getting good charge out of your altenator?? Is it hard to turn do to lack of power steering?? Have you thrown the belt multiple times?? If that pulley is not spinning there is only to causes for this. Either the pulley is froze, or there is no tension against the pulley. If the pulley is frozen you should be burning up belts often. The tensioner pulley spring is broke and not holding the proper tension. The belt might still be rotating, but the belt will not be rotating the other accessories attached like it should be. My chrysler van has a dual belt set up and yes if the tension pulley is not moving then you will be lacking the rotation need to make the ac compressor operate properly.

SOURCE: .i need a diagram of
Open hood, although it is easier to reach the belt tensioner from under the car, you will need to route the belt from above. Take the tension off the belt tensioner (a breaker bar or rachet and the proper size socket with a pipe to give ya more leverage should work) and pull the belt while the tensioner is pulled away from the belt. to put new belt on, properly follow accesorie pulleys with new belt, leaving the tensioner pulley last once that far, take your breaker bar or rachet with proper size socket... and pull the tensioner away from the belt so that you can slip the belt over the tensioner, push the belt over pulley. release the tensioner and check to make sure the belt is seated properly on all pulleys.
There should be a sticker with the diagram on the right strut tower. If it is no longer there the way to find the information (and a lot more related to your vehicle) would be to buy a Haynes manual for your model from an auto parts store or go to your local library and look in a Chilton manual. Most libraries will copy the page containing the pertinent info..

It could be your Ac Compressor pulley bearing. Thats what it was for me. I replaced the altenator first too thinking that was it.
