Mechanics

HELLO, MY HAS RECENTLY STARTED MAKING A SQUEALING NOISE WHEN I FIRST START THE CAR AND IT IS IDLE.

2004 Ford Ka • 30,000 miles

I believe the noise to be coming from the belt in front of the drivers seat (right hand drive). I read online to apply a little water to the belt and see if this stop the problem, this worked briefly but the noise soon returned. Can you please help me to diagnose the possible problem and possible cost? Thanks for you time.

Probably need a new belt and tensioner. About $100.-150
