    metalic rattle squeak when let of accel intermittent?

    hey all, since ive had the s3 occassionally at very low speeds while turning, below 10mph iv had a weird squeak rattle noise that happened very occassionally.. thought nothing of it but today it got alot worse?

    if im driving at 30 then let of i get a rattly/squeaky/nut in camshaft kinda noise... its still intermittent btw but obviously annoying ?

    thinking maybe aux belt tensioner or aircon pump bearings???

    its a 1999 apy s3, with 144000 any help?

    Hi Justarn ,
    Check out your alternator clutch pulley as mine made a similar screech noise before it went on my S3 . If you remove the multi v belt the alternator clutch pulley should only move one way , to do this you will need to lock the alternator from moving using a screwdriver or such . Hope this helps ,
