How To Quiet Squeaky Belts On A Car - Cheap And Easy Fix
Here is how to quiet squeaky belts on a car. It's cheap and easy to do, and all you need is a bar of soap. If the belts on your car are squeaking, this is how to fix it. In some cases, it isn't the belts making the noise, but the belt tensioner. If that's what is making the noise, you'll need to replace it. If the car's accessory drive belt is causing the loud squeaking when it rubs against the pulleys, putting some soap on the bottom of the belt as well as the sides will stop the belt from squeaking. It doesn't take a lot of soap to get the job done, but make sure you turn the engine over a few times and put soap on the belt each time, so you cover the parts of the belt you can't reach. This cheap and easy squeaky car belt fix has been around for a long time and works pretty well.
