As you start your vehicle you may hear your belt squeal, don't panic! The squealing noise is most commonly due to the rubber belt slipping on the metal pully. The belt may be slipping due to improper tension, or the belt may have simply just got old. The surface of the belt may have become glazed, cracked, or brittle and can cause noise from the belt. Replacing your belts should be included in your vehicle maintenance. If the belt is replaced when small amounts of wear is found, this can help prevent costly repairs.
