Re: Squeal from serpentine belt?
He said in the first post that he can't work out exactly the squeal is coming from and wants to find the source - by using a piece of hose the noise is directed into the ear from the other end of the hose - cutting out most of the other noise from around you. For example if the squeal was from the p/s pulley, then by putting the hose near the pulley would make it very clear.
Also useful for detecting air leaks...
He said he had a squeal, not that the belt is definately slipping. To me it sounds like the alternator.
What are you on? You even said yourself to double check bearings, which is exactly what I suggested...
