fixing belt squeek with Comet

Hi!


I have a belt squeek on my 95 Taurus only when it's wet. A mechanic
inspected it and said it's fine. I have heard of a possibility to clean the
belt by putting some Comet on it. Is this a plausable solution? Any
suggestions, coments, pros and cons?

Thanks!

Re: fixing belt squeek with Comet

Are you totally sure it's the belt and not a shaft?

No, I'm not sure. I just assumed it's the belt. How to know what sqeeks? I
have heard that Comet cleans off the oil and other junk that might be on the
belt and causes the squeak, making the belt to slip. Is that true?

Re: fixing belt squeek with Comet

Never heard of anyone using Comet for that. But, a lot of people never
heard of gapping points with the foil wrapper from a stick of gum,
either.

So, open the hood, and pour some water over the belt. (watch out for
spray : ) You should know soon enough. On the other hand, if it's a
shaft, it may be squeaking all the time but makes far more racket when
wet. Check the tension, and inspect the belt for wear spots.
