I had all of my belts replaced the first week of December, 2011. They were squealing like crazy, and were beyond ready for replacement. The new belts have been great ever since, but lately, my alternator belt is squealing when I start my cold engine. It's only for a second, unless my A/C is on, then it's for 2-3 seconds.
I assume that belt needs to be tightened, but I have no clue how to do it. I've searched high and low for specific instructions on how to do this on my Taco (2004 PreRunner, 3.6L V6), but have come up empty. Lots and lots of belt threads here and elsewhere, but none give how-to's for my Taco. I can't even find anything in my service manual.
If anyone can point me in the right direction for this, I would appreciate it. I've learned so much about my truck since I bought it last November (I replaced my brakes, all fluids, new stereo, etc.), but I'm still very green when it comes to vehicles. I had a local mechanic replace my belts because it would have taken me a week.
