belt squeal was created by asetoftools
hey there. Have a bit of belt squeal on the PS / AC belt. There is a tensioner as well. Sprayed water, the sound completely and immediately goes away. Belt was replaced aprox 3 years, 30k km ago.

I thought the sound was coming from the tensioner, so replaced it last weekend (it was $16 so no big deal). Sound still exists. I know that the water indicates that its a pulley misalignment or a bad belt. I have another belt that i plan on swapping on. Other than that, I am not sure how i fix pulley misalignment... i'd probably take it in after this but maybe someone has another idea about it. I got this info from pulley inspection videos on youtube. No pulley has any play, they look pretty straight, belt does not wobble. do not make any sounds when turning them by hand.

car has 240k and is a kia magentis 2003
