Q: Screeching noise after belt replaced

asked by on

I had two belts replaced, but it's now making a screeching noise.

Hi. Your vehicle has belts that are manually adjustable. If they are replaced and the tension is not set correctly, they will squeal. I suggest you have a trained mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, adjust your belts to specification.
