Im getting a squeak (seems more apparrent when its cold) on tickover
as soon as i turn on engine. It lasts for about 20secs then gets
quiet, if i start to acelerate then the squeak dissapears faster -
then its fine until left for a while.
The car has done 69k, and has recently had a cam-belt kit installed.
Is it a fan-belt or timing belt, please bear in mind i know nothing
about cars, its just so i dont look like a moron when a garage tries
to rip me off!.
Re: Annoying squeak on tickover - 2000 Vreg Laguna
Could well be fan belt. That usually manifests as a squeal due to the extra
load on the alternator when the battery's a bit flat after starting and with
demisters on etc. They are usually fairly easy to tighten. It may be that
they had to remove the fan belt to get to the cam belt and didn't tighten it
