Advice please - belt whine
Hi, just got my car back on the road after 2 weeks, and as soon as I started it I noticed a louder than before belt whirring/whine which has continued.
Its coming from the belt end of the engine - not sure which one(s),
I had the cam belt done 1 year and 12,000 miles ago.
It seems odd that this has happened straight away after getting the car back on the road (new actuator) and I wonder if some bearing somewhere have seized/beome "sticky"
Noise isnt getting any better or worse, but I have to do around 500 miles over the next few days for interviews etc and want to know if I should be worried or if theres anything in particular I should check? Or spray with copious amounts of lubricant?
Smaky suggested taking off the aux belt and seeing if it disappeared but I'm not sure how to do this and would probably end up doing more harm than good - any other advice Smaky?
Sorry for the essay!
