2012 drive belt squeal...
I have out up with it for a year, driving me crazy...how do I stop it?

It is not the alternator squeal as this belt is tight. It is the driving down a hill under no throttle squeal. All help is appreciated!

Welcome to the forum!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you put a new drive belt on it and if so, did it still squeal?

It has done it since day 1 and I thought it was normal.

Going down hill, as soon as the clutch lets loose and the belt moves out, it squeals. If I give it gas, it re-enguages and the sound stops.

It is a 2012...

I notice a belt sound when I am coasting down the hill. I figured it was part of the braking to prevent free wheeling (speeding up).
