My belt was squeeking like crazy when I first got my car,so last week I put on a new belt and problem solved. I started my car this morning,It's been about a week since I put on the new belt, and the thing is starting to squeek again, not bad but starting again! What could be wrong??? Also I discovered that my belts splash guard is missing!! Your help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

Are you running any underdrive pulleys?

If not, get the splash guard. It will help extend the life of the belt and the associated pulleys. If you do have an underdrive pulley, just make sure the splash guard is cut to accomodate the belt.

Also, I'd advise you to changed the belt tensioner too. Many of us who have replaced just the belt have found the tensioner goes very soon afterwards.
