Alot of times that will be the tensioner pulley or just teh single pulley by itself. One way to try to check to see which one it is is to removed the belt. all pulleys should turn freely and not wobble.Good Luck!!

Clicking sound near Idler pully

The bearing in the pulley is a single row ball bearing so you can expect a slight side movement in the pulley. Check the drive belt for cracks. Ensure that the belt is running at the top of the pulley and not down in the groove. Lastly if there is no other obvious problems then change the drive belt

Chirping sound

Start with the AC , when the sound starts, turn off the AC and see if it goes away. If that works, you have a problem with the AC compressor pulley. Check the other pulleys by taking the belt out and turning the pulleys one by one and seeing if it makes noise. Let me know how it goes.

Why would the belt to my van keep shredding or popping off

check all of your pulleys (a/c, idler pulley, water pump, etc...), make sure they all turn by hand and don't seem loose. sounds like you might have one locked up or sticking really badly.

My 1998 chevy prizm has a squealing noise from the serpentine belt area.

Hello ed.... The serpentine belt or one of the pulleys that it turns is making that annoying sound. Carefully inspect the belt using a flashlight to illuminate any rips or tears, and inspect each of the pulleys looking for grease or heat marks.

Often, the belt has to be replaced and when that is being done, each pulley can be closely examined for wear and tear, even being frozen up. Joe

Squeak is annoying the only parts not change yet is h2o pump ac bearing and p/s bearings dont know what to do

Remove the belt and turn the water pump, A/C clutch and power steering by hand in the direction they normally rotate. You may be able to feel a bad bearing. Does the sound change when you turn on the A/C or Defrost? That would point to the A/C clutch.

I assume you have already tried a new belt, and have cleaned all the pulleys to make sure there isn't something on them causing the belt to slip (then squeak when it catches again).

Can a alternator PULLEY make a chirping noise?

It's possible that the alternator is making the chirp noise (bearing) but I would try this first. Start the engine and allow the engine to idle and open the hood and take a spray can of WD40 and shoot a short burst onto the bottom side of the belt and pulley. Dont spray allot as this will cause the belt to slip. The WD40 is to lube the pulley grooves and belt a slight bit. Hope this works!

Chirping noise on a S320CDI/2008 when accelerating

It may be a bad serpentine belt or pulley or may be a bad bearing on an alternator or water pump or even a power steering pump or tensioner. Here is my suggestion when this noise is hear with vehicle running pour/spary belts with water and see if this noise get louder or goes away. If it does either then the belt is worn and replacing it will solve this problem. If there is NO difference then you will have to disconnect the belt and check each pulley individually to see which one is make this noise, this can be done by turning the pulley by hand. when it found replace that pully/part will fix the problem. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
