In response to previous thread re: squeaky/screechy sound when starting: my belt was replaced but after few months noise began again.

Asked by Jul 28, 2012 at 07:11 PM about the 2007 Toyota Yaris Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I took it back and they tightened belt saying it was loose. Next day, squeak returned. It makes the sound for about 2-3 seconds when starting up. I have not tried the WD40 suggestion and may try. But wondered it this problem could be something else?

May not be belt may be a idler arm, just a thought. If its a belt use belt dressing. Sounds more lika pully sheave worn.

Thank you, we will look into the worn "pulley sheave". That has not been mentioned as a possibility.
