My girlfriends picanto 1.0 2006 reg has started making a squealing noise on start up for a few seconds. Is this likely to be one of the belts slipping? If so which one?
The cambelt needs changing soon due to it being 6 years old and I was wondering what a normal cost to replace this at a KIA/independent garage would be?

Thanks

Chris

Thanks Davy is the alternator belt another term for the fan belt?
I am guessing that it might need tightening.

Yes that was the old name for it when a belt driven fan was used to draw air through the radiator, its now called an auxilliary beltas the cooling fan is electric and attached to radiator.
