focus squealing belts? - matt79
Hi
Can anyone advise on a problem I have with my Focus 1.6 zetec 99 T reg with 52k on the clock. When the engine is started from cold there is a loud squealing from the engine, which sounds like a belt slipping / squealing. After few minutes it seems to die down. The noise isnt noticable under acceleration, but recently the squealing noise has been accompained by a ticking or tapping noise, noticable when the car is stationary, ie at traffic lights (warm weather = windows down = noticing the noise). Has any one had the same experience or could offer advice?
Regards
matt
