MG MGF Technical - Fan Belt
|Every other morning I get a screeching sound which I'm fairly sure is my fan belt slipping. It was replaced when I had a HGF a few months ago so I'm sure it just needs adjusting.|
Can someone give me advice on doing this myself or does it need to go to a dealer. Fitting my K&N has given me some mechanical confidence so I'm ready to have a go as long as it is not too complicated.
My F is a 96 1.8mpi
Thanks for any help,
|Probably alternator belt (fans are electric).|
But I concur with your diagnosis - especially if the screeching increases when you turn electrical loads on. In theory it's easy to fix - the alternator is on a swing-mount, held in position by an "adjustable bolt". You can do this yourself - but accessibility isn't easy.
Garage should take 5 mins to do it.
