    My belt started squeaking last week and it is annoying. I tried spraying it with a belt conditioner and it stops the squeak for a good while. It doesnt squeak the whole time either, it starts to squeak at random moments. Whenever it does start to squeak it only does so above 30mph. Can anyone help me with this problem? Is it even my belt squeaking? If you need anymore information just leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I get back from school.

    Thanks guys. Everything is fine so far, I just changed the belt because it looked worn out.

    So far there hasnt been any squeaks from the new belt, but I will see what happens as time goes by.
