Hey again ......

i'm here with yet another high pitched noise lol..

My Car:
VX Berlina S2 Auto 3.8

at around about 80kp/h when the car drops to 4th gear, there is a high pitched squeal at about 1500 revs, so pretty much keeping the same speed, maybe under more accelaration (exhaust takes over then haha), but when i take my foot off the gas the squealing stops..

i can sometimes here it when accelerating through all the gears, but once the revs get too high, drones out the squealing..

so yeh anyone know what this is?

Thanks :D

also forgot to say, the brake pads have been replaced recently (to help remove the squeaking brakes, helped so much *rolls eyes*).. so it can't be the squealer things lol..

and how much would it cost to replace one of them? any mechanics want to chuck in known prices?

mmm... i didn't check if it was going on when my a/c was on or not.. i'll do that when i go out 2morrow..
i'll try n record it, but its a bit too quiet, so i'm not sure if my phone could pick it up..

and how much would it cost to replace either the fan belt or airconditioner belt too? just looking to see how much i need to save to repair :)..

Belt $30.00 for decent quality one (GATES) Easy to replace.

Pulleys $25 - $30 make sure you get metal ones. Easy to replace. Replace all three of them, one that sits next to A/C compressor, One on the pre-tensioner, and the ribbed one on top right of motor.

Tip for if your changing or taking off your belt.
Check if theres a diagram of how the belt is to go back on and if not make a sketch so when you go to put it back in you wont be there for half hour guessing through each possible way ;)
