I'm told you need to remove the power steering belt 1st to be able to remove the alternator belt - is this the case?
1st time I have used this service.
I have no mechanical knowledge at all - Bought the 1999 Matiz for just £450 and it's in extremely good condition for age. (the guy I bought it off was absolutely skint, couldn't get a bank loan & wanted some quick cash for his holiday - 11 month MOT with 48,500 miles (with previous MOT's supplied) new pads & discs 4 months ago and new tyres all round 3 months ago - so I can't really complain!)
Have been getting an intermittent screeching noise in damp/wet weather which sounded very much like a slipping fan belt - hence my questions.
A friend of mine is a Fiat tech & is going to change the belt for me on Saturday - might be an idea to put a new PAS belt on as well whilst they're both off as both belts cost very little.
Thanks for your help - i have pressed the "accept" button
