Belt Tension - Drive Belt
Hi Guys (again).
I had a belt fitted yesterday and i was warned that it would need more tension applying after a couple of miles. This morning when I turned left or right I got a horrible squeal. After a bit of research and with the information I was told, I came to the conclusion that there needed to be more tension.
Armed with my trusted Pug 306 book, I decided to have a shot at applying more tension myself. Well I wish I hadn't started. Regardless of what tension I apply to the belt, I get a squeal noise (although not as drastic as this morning when I turned).
Steering feels incredibly light too.. which I find odd.
