Is it constant or on and off?

Is it when the AC compressor is running?

Can you recreate the sound by doing anything specific? (i.e. turn on a/c or while accelerating)


You might be better off going to a dealership if it's quite noticable. hehe, I only ask these questions so that I can keep an eye out when I drive my car...when i get back to the States that is :-P

I'm special :)

Using the AC more? Wish I could say that down here

Have you checked the belt itself to see if its cracked, or missing chunks?

Thx! But yup, belt looks to be in decent shape. May have them take a closer look for the 30k.

Your best bet is to have the dealer look at it, after all, that is what the warranty is for. In the meantime, try spraying some WD-40 on it the belt, while its running, so it can spread out throughout the entire belt, see if the noise goes away with that. I used to do that when my AC belt got noisy on my old cars.
