As above, get some WD40 and carefully spray a bit on each belt in turn, see if the noise stops... Though on that video it sounded a little metallic. My guess would be alternator belt (its either worn or loose) or possible the alternator itself (maybe a bearing)

Use silicon lube as it won't attract dust.. Wd40 attracts dust and can compound the problem

Hope you get it sorted!

Hey thank you guys so much

So a simple wd40 will solve the prob? I mean I don't even need to tight It up or anything? The belt seems to me is tint and not look worn it's wired

The WD isnt to solve it, just to diagnose it, if you spray a belt and the noise stops/changes then you know its only a belt thats worn or slack. if you cant get the noise to change or stop with the WD then its more serious and will need further investigation.

If the WD doesnt alter the sound then its time to remove belts one at a time and see when the noise goes, this will narrow it down even more.

Does your car have AC ? does switching AC on and off alter it ?

Does your power steering feel normal ? is it notchy or heavier when the noise is there ?

You can also use a little bit of talc, I put some in my hand and rubbed it on the belts (engine OFF!) to find out which belt it was. Turned out the PS belt on my FTO was squealing - Once you know which belt is doing it, adjust it to the correct tension as Herman said.

Is the aircon and alternator on the same belt? Would explain why it squeals when you have the heater on or headlights I guess.

Oops, Mark already said it, too slow! Lol

Thank you mate I'll get it today and try it on also, when I turn my heater on or when seems like I use more electricity such as beam light or studio the sound starts and some time when I put in first gear or down shift this most happens when first start of the day the power steering feel normal when it starts sound last question is is the alternator belt for R32 special?

Not sure if the belt is special or not, A decent motorfactor should be able to match it up if they dont have one. Failing that im sure one of the traders on here will be happy to sort you one out.

I got all my belts from my regular general car parts supplier.

Yes you can get a reconditioned one, but before that make sure you confirm it is the water pump pulley, normally the pulley that makes that kind of a noise has a pley in it, so check them out for any signes of pley.

If it's not the water pump, then it could be the altenator belt/or pulley ie the alternator itself.

If the belt is tight enough and its still noisy then its worth swapping the belt for a new one and cleaning the pulleys. while its off just spin the pulleys that are now free and check them for play/noise too, im guessing they will be fine though.

How much does it deflect if you push the belt up and down ?, should only be 6mm either way or so...

It seems prety tight but not sure how much it deflect prob more than 6mm also what's the size of the belt? Hard to change?

Its not too hard to swap the belt, Even at a garage it shouldn't cost much...

You may have to remove one or both of the other belts to get it off, I dont recall exactly.

I'm afraid I don't know the size, I just took mine off and matched them up at my local motor factors.

belt

glad to see your getting there with the problem.i changed my power stering pump to a gtr33 one as my 32 one was leaking(common fault for 32 ones).i did have an power enterprise blue belt on mine but just went down to my local car shop and bought an goodyear one,about £7.i just asked for a 4pk 955 one.he did have some other sizes there to.i managed to change the belt myself,just jacked it up got underneath with a 12mm(i think) spanner undid the 2bolts and pulled the powersteering pump over till old beilt was very loose then took that one off and replaced it adjusting powersteering pump up tight agai and tightening bolts up.ones at the end of a long threaded bolt and otheres about half way along the same bolt.mine is a 33pump though but sure a 32 cant be that different.if its the othe belt im afraid i havent had to change that one,but if you can get under it if i was you id just have alook first to see if you can give it ago.good luck mate.
ow my noise has gone since changed my belt by the way.

Top tip with the WD40, I didn't know that.
