    Squeaky PAS on start up - FOUND THE SQUEEL !

    Right ok so the set up on an ST is a little different to the pics but the principle is the same. There is a long bolt that holds the bottom of the alternator and that runs through a square block with two threaded holes in it, you need to look for a bolt (14mm head iirc) going into this block from the PAS reservoir side of the engine similar to where the pulley is in my picture. LOOSEN this bolt and the alternator will be free to move. You then need to take the rest of the tension from the belt by winding the long bolt (12mm head) going through the square block from the front of the engine (see picture as again it is similar) out. This will loosen the belt enough to remove it from the alternator pulley Wish i had a ST to make a quick vid with as it is hard to explain

    Is yours a ST or GT?

    Find this bolt under the alternator. It is a nut on the 3S-GE and a bolt on the 7A-FE. This is the nut/bolt up close. And on the 3S-GE you undo the pulley nut but on the 7A-FE there is a bolt underneath the alternator pulley. Any other issues just ask

    The aux belt is tensioned by a long bolt running underneath the alternator. You will first need to loosen another bolt going through the side of the tensioning block. This can be found under the alternator on the PAS reservoir side. Once you have loosened the locking bolt then you can wind the tensioning bolt out until you can remove the belt from the alternator pulley. The alternator pulley acts as the tensioner for the aux belt. Hopefully that makes sense but if not i can get some pictures for you

    Spot on mate! Let us know how it goes!

    Thing is the PAS belt is a V shaped belt and over time it will wear away, as the V wears down the friction co-efficient decreses and so even tightening the belt may not stop it from slipping. In my experience when a PAS pump is on it's way out then you either get less effective pumping and/or you will hear the bearing starting to rumble. Obviously i can't diagnose it properly without seeing the car but i know i would rather replace a £10 belt before jumping for a £100 pump

    If you can get hold of some (halfords or the like) try spraying some carb cleaner onto the belt while it is squealing on a cold morning. It will temporarily clean the belt. If the belt has a contaminant on it then it will slip. The squealing should stop after spraying the belt. Failing that i would just replace the belt unless you know when it was last done. Always start with the cheapest option and work up
