Hello All,

I have just brought a 1.6 Corsa Sport, 99 'V. The Car is in Very good condition with a full service history.

However I have one little issue. There is a noise coming from the engine which sounds like a loose belt of some sort. When i turn the AC on, the noise disappears completely. But when i turn the AC off it comes back instantly. It is quite load and annoying. The cam-belt has been changed at 60K, it now has 67K. This leads me to believe it is not the cam-belt.

Any input is much appreciated!!!

Thanks

Adam.

No, the belt is less than 10 and doesn't take long to change.

Hi,

Thank for your input...

It appears so far it could be-
1. the alternator Belt,
2. the A/c clutch

If it is no.2 and I leave the A/C on...will this damage anything, or is the A/c even working if the clutch is faulty!! Also is an A'c clutch repair a big job?


Thanks again

Adam


Plan to fix soon as possilbe but I am really busy at the moment - but if the prob is urgent i will get it done ASAP. If not and it is not doing any harm i can wait.
