Sharan chirping noise on full lock
« on: April 03, 2018, 08:46:42 AM »
Hey team, got a problem with the wifes 06 Sharan. On full lock only and either side its making a squeely chirping noise which is reasonably loud. I thought it would be the old seized alternator pulley but I changed the whole thing and it didn't make any difference. What else should I be looking at??

Tensioner or belt , feel the belt does it feel a little loose? To be honest i would of changed the belt and tensioner and alternator pulley as they are very common.

Sounds really stupid, but;

Turn off any fans/hvac inside the car and see if it still full locks then.

My fan chirps if I put the car under a bit load like full lock.

I'd make sure power steering fluid level reservoir is full, not just ok.

Seized alternator pulley would cause the aux. belt to slip.
I replaced the alternator pulley when I had the same issue. Quite an easy job to do

Mine did the same esp on low rev parking/reversing.
Changed belt and tensioner to no avail and it was only after I
changed the alternator pulley it stopped.
 
have a look at the tensioner at tick over, it shouldn't move much
if it is, the pulleys knackered

I bet after the failed overrunning pulley the tensioner is now knackered,I had the seized alt pulley which I replaced but tensioner still bounced around and was noisy when in full lock parking etc.
