Diesel Serpentine Belt life
Is anybody getting the same issue as me with Serpentine Belt life?
When I fit a brand new Serpentine Belt, everything is nice and quiet. After 3 to 4 thousand miles it starts squeeeeeeeeeeeking when cold and quietens down when warm. There appears to be no wear on the belt and if I give it a squirt of belt dressing it goes quiet for a while.
After a while I get fed up and fit a new belt and everything is quiet again. I have a garage full of serviceable Serpentine Belts, but they squeeeeeeeeek.
Does anybody else have this problem?
Looked at a 2005 model last weekend and when 'Arthur Daley' started her up she squeeeeeekkkked.. "they all do this mate" was his response.
