I have issues with belt squealing on Suzuki swift. The car is a 2005 (new model) 1.3 petrol. Just before Christmas the original 9 year old belt started to squeal and snapped, I replaced the belt and s


belts squeal for only 2 reason
it's bad. the belt.
or the accessorym it drives is Seized.

i guess you never head of a 5buck stethoscope
and listen to the accessory bearings, ah, alternator front and rear
i hear, front crying for help. easy as child play.
sold everywhere cars parts are sold.

there is no need to guess, , answer use tools.
this was true in 1920 and now, belts then and now all can squeal.
in the old days we had many belts and could drop them
then comes, SERP belts. one for all.
we dont have 1.3 swifts here, so cant see belt routing.

Engine squeal with belts off


Hello-
I assume you mean the belts are squealing when you replaced the belts. You should not run your car without the belts - damage may result.
Squealing belts usually mean they are not on tight enough (loose). Refer to your car's belt replacement instructions to determine how to increase their tension. Belts can be damaged and accessories (such as power steering, water pump, etc) not function correctly if the belts are not tensioned properly.

Squealing noise (LOUD)


You need to check the pulley alignment of all the pulleys, they should all be in a perfectly straight line, otherwise the belt will squeal

Toyota Tercel belts are squealing


I have been having the same problem with the alternator belt squealing, most noticeably, when using the heater fan , accelerating, turning the headlights on. I have a 1997 Toyota Tercel CE 1.5L 4cyl with no A/C. I just tightened the belt tight enough that there is no give to the belt and it does not squeal anymore.

I also used a Goodyear Gatorback from Napa belt which seems to be nice and quiet when tight enough.

My 97 tercel has also starting squealing when cold-but only when I reverse.


Squealing, like a belt? I've found that the alternator belt has to be super-tight or else it squeals. It's a pain in the **** to torque the alternator sideways enough to tighten the belt.

If it is a belt, you could also buy some belt dressing spray and see if that helps. It's pretty cheap stuff per can.
