Squeaky Aux Belt Tensioner
Last month I carried out a variator change on my 147, I changed all the tensioners and belts as you should. The car runs great and still does, but after a couple of weeks the aux belt tensioner has started to develop an annoying squeak on startup when cold.
The squeak lasts probably for about 2minutes then clears.
I know its the tensiner as I have sprayed it with silicone spray before and the squeak dissapears.
Is there something that I have done wrong or could it be a duff tensioner??
Forgot to mention the car is a 1.6ts
Any ideas would be great
