Hi, I managed to have a quick look over the weekend (between showers) and It's something to do with the tensioner pully.
I started the engine when cold and the noise was there, I then applied a large dab of vaseline to the tensioner face that runs on the back of the belt restarted the engine and hey presto SILENCE.
My tensioner is central on the belt, so no issue there. However I did notice that the belts I use (Continental brand from Euro Car Parts) have a cross weave pattern on the back face and I'm wondering if this is anything to do with the noise because the one on the Toyota had a smooth back face..
Bruno, where did you get your belt from and does it have a smooth or cross weaved back face?
