We also agree with you, if making noise it should be replaced. Belts that have been Hollering for a while are dry cracked and not flexible anymore and a are just begging to strand you some where.

RECOMENDATION:
Go back to your dealer and use the factory original belt.

Hope this tip helps

Either its developed the same fault or the fan motor bearing has failed, needs greasing or, if there's a belt, the belt is slipping.

Fan belt is making noise.


If your fan belt is squealing and changes pitch when you accelerate or let off the gas or squeals at first then tapers off, then it is slipping. If it is slipping you could replace the belt (probably a good idea considering the age of the car), or as a temporary fix you can spray the belt with belt dressing. Belt dressing is only a few bucks at any local auto parts store and comes in a spray can. Follow directions on the can.

If it is a different type of noise like a grinding or rattling noise, it could actually be a pulley or any of the devices the belt is used to drive, these can include power steering, AC compressor, idler pulley or water pump to name a few.

My best advice is to replace the belt, and toss the old one in the trunk as an emergency spare. The belt should cost under $20.00 and is money well spent as it is cheaper then being stranded and needing to be towed.

Loud high pitched noise from belt


When you have the belt off, spin that idler pulley and see if it turns easily or makes noise. Check if the bearing feels good and smooth or if it wobbles any. While you are at it, check the fan and fan clutch to see if they turn smoothly also. There should be some resistance to the fan clutch, and make sure the fan isn't rubbing on anything.

Replacing the idler pulley is usually done as a unit since the bearing is part of the pulley.

Noise from area of serpentine belt.


The best way I have found to locate a belt noise is to take a can of WD40 and spray it on the belt when the engine is running. (be careful of the fan) If the noise goes away, you know that it is a belt noise and not a bearing. When serpentine belts dry out they make funny noises. Hope this helps, cheers

How do I replace the fan belt on my 2001 Audi A4 2.8


All you need to do is loosen the tensioner pully and pull the belt off, Make sure you remember how the belt came off and put it on the same way.
