Hi, I have a 2003 Camry Sportivo ACV36R 4cyl Auto, there is a strange "squish" / "squeak" noise as I turn from around the steering wheel/column area, I am sure it is inside and not from under the bonnet area. I have sprayed WD40 between the steering wheel and horn contact area, also on the rubber boot area where the shaft goes thru the firewall Any ideas ???? Thanks Bruce
Hey guys, Recently noticed squeal coming from engine area, and initially thought it was potentially the belt. Took the car in last week to have it checked out, and they said the serpatine belt measured fine and looked ok. So I did a bit of research and came across a few threads on this forum about belt tensioner on the forums(http://au.toyotaowne...0k/page__st__15) , so told them to check the tensioner pulley and idler pully. They noticed a bit of vertical play on the tensioner, so I asked them to look into replace the tensioner, and also the idler pully, thinking the bearings were on the way out. Anyways, that didn't fix the problem and the squeal is still there - as per below youtube link. I'm starting to think it is the alternator bearings, any thoughts/advice? Just to add: - Noise only at low speeds (<40km/h) - Noise evidently loud only when in D, R (Park, Neutral noise is not as audible) - Noise regardless air con off/on - Vehicle has done around 98,000 km Thanks in advance...
