I am having a terrible squeaking noise coming from the belts. I have taken off the AC belt and eliminated that one. It was making the noise when we got it back in October 2006 and subsequently had the auto tensioner and both the serpentine belt and AC belt changed. It did seem to stop it but then came back and went again. Therefore i have narrowed it down to the idler pulley being at fault.
Has anyone changed an idler pulley for the serpentine belt on a 2000 2.9TDi? I believe i have the right torx bit to get it undone but is it easier to get to it from underneath or does the engine mount have to be removed?
Any advice on the proceedure would be most grateful. I spent £60 on a Sedona workshop manual from Kia and it doesn't say anything about changing the idler pulley.
Thanks in advance, hope someone can help ASAP as it's driving me up the wall now.
