Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So i recently got a 2011 mazda 6, have noticed it
squeals pretty loud when idling. I did the usual and
replaced the serp belt and tensioner, but the sound
continues. It goes away when i accelerate, but gets
loud when i'm idling. I have no idea what else to do

check timing belt tensioner?

I'm no mechanical master, is that something i could do without taking a bunch of shit apart?


do you know when the timing belt and tensioners where replaced, if you dont know or have no record then change it, a local shop would advise best on where the noise comes from, and no there is no easy way

No idea when they were replaced. But i took it to 2 different mechanics neither of which could find the problem
