My 308 1.6 HDI has recently started to make a chirping sound from the engine bay, this seems to be coming from the Serpentine Belt. Whilst having some tyres fitted I mentioned this to the fitter and he resloved the problem by squirting some liquid on the belt. Unfortunately this was only a temporary fix and it has resumed. I've done some research online and found that it can be caused by a worn belt or misalligned pulleys?

My Pug is 30 months old and has only covered 26,000 miles, are the Main Dealers obliged to fix either of the above problems under warranty? Any advice would be appreciated.

Regards

The belt is a wear and tear item subject to a scheduled replacement period, and occasional adjustment as required. It's not covered by the warranty.

Now you've let some muppet contaminate it with lord knows what I'd recommend you just replace it, and make sure the tension is scrupulously checked annually or every 12.5k miles, whichever comes soonest.

Serpentine Belt Update

Hi there,

Just to let you know I booked my car in today at the Main Dealers, they're replacing the Belt and Pulley f.o.c. and they gave me a courtesy car :thumb: . They're also doing a recall on it, I think it's something to do with the bonnet. A great result, they never once mentioned paying for it and to their credit I can't fault the service.

A very happy Pug Owner

David
