My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
After doing some research on this issue here this looks to be a belt alignment issue and requires a special tool to have it aligned properly again.This usually needs checked and done at a dealer or authorized repair center to correct this here.I would have this checked to make sure this is the cause here.
Thanks Pete
