If the belt is cracked inside the ribs or two years of age replace it.
if new clean all pulleys with a solvent and apply belt dressing

Squeaking fan belt


fan belts squeak for several reasons 1 incorrect belt for pulley.2 belt running on the botton of the pulley and worn pulleys. To check measure across the top part of the pulley and the widest part (back) of the belt should be the same if not marginally bigger. V belts work best at t5he top of the pulley.If you can see that the pulley is polished at the bottom the belt is slipping and not driving Check if the pulley sides where the belt runs is not stepped from wear. Recheck the tension as new belts stretch slightly. If you have a multi groove pulley check the tension setting. As a last resort CRC make a product that is used to stop belt but it is best to fix the real fault first

When I turn the heater on the heater belt or fan squeaks and sounds like it is binding up, what can I do and where do I locate the heater belt or fan?


All heater fan motors are electric with no belt. They squeak when the motors are wearing out. If you look on your firewall, you will see the round fan with possibly a rubber hose sticking out the bottom. There are many pics online that will show you what it looks like. It is very easy to remove and reinstall

Cold start fan belt squeak... slight misalignment


its possible that a pulley replacement is needed but i would first reccomend buying a lubricating spray from your local hardware store and applying it to your squeeling belt if the noise stops then you may just need to tighten or replace the belt. in addition an overtightend belt can cause undesired stress on the pulleys.

Heavy squeak when turning(like turning heavy rubber belt)Tribute


Your fan belt is slipping. As you turn the wheel you make a power demand on the power steering compressor. This compressor takes its power from the fan belt so as you steer the compressor shaft is harder to rotate and the belt slips as a result. The fan belt should be adjustable by loosening the alternator bolts and moving the alternator away form the engine and than re-tightening the bolts. Check that the fan belt is not worn, if there are obvious signs of wear or cracking then renewal would be the best step. Always make a sketch of the path of the belt around the respective engine pulleys before removing it.

Fan belt squeaking


Hi. Usually, this will lead to the replacement of the belt, itself. Check the condition of the belt. Make sure it is not worn, or cracking. If dry rotting is visible, simply replace the belt. If the tension is beyond factory specs, adjust to correct the issue.
