97 SOHC Neon Belt squeal

08-07-2012, 11:32 PM
Ok so me and my dad recently replaced my AC compressor+clutch, Dryer, and expansion valve after having problems with the clutch and the AC not working. Now the belt squeals whenever i make turns but it only does this when the AC is on. Does anybody have any ideas on what may be causing this? I am thinking about buying a new steering pump but if there is a cheaper route to fixing this I am all for it. The belt is brand new so it is not the problem.

You need to tighten the tension for the belt. That is usually why it will squeal.

Sounds like the belt is not tight enough. Tighten the belt. That should resolve the problem.

I tightened the belt and put dressing on it. It still squeals. Any other ideas? Im thinking I'll probably just put on a new pump.
