Powersteering full lock squeal when stationary/slow movement - help!
Well my car (A4 Avant 1.9tdi) has decided to start making an awful squeal when stationary or moving slowly on full lock!! I have searched the forum and found some useful information saying it could be the clutch on the alternator pulley.
I have just been out to the car and was able to move the cooling fan just inside the alternator - it was said that it should only move one way which was correct (if it doesn't move it is definitely the pulley), however, I had to use a little force to make it move. Should it be free flowing one way or should there be some resistance?? Also at the time I did this the squeal had gone quiet so don't know if it is on it's way out but not completely gone yet.
Any ideas? Could it be something else attached to the V-Belt?
Secondly if it is the alternator pulley is this a job you can do on the driveway (I know it may require taking the front end apart) and has anyone done it to give me some guidance
if it is a garage what kind of cost am I looking at?
