I had a slightly squeaking serpentine belt, so I sprayed just a fast squirt of liquid wrench on the grooved side and it got real loud. I let it run for a few minutes and it still is loud. How do I clean this off and start over?
Do the following:
- Go down to your local parts store and purchase a new serpentine belt and a can of carb cleaner (or brake clean).
- Take the old belt off and throw it in the garbage. It's useless now that it has a lubricant sprayed on it.
- Take the carb cleaner and some paper towels and thoroughly clean all of the pulleys where the belt made contact.
- Install the new belt.
- Call it a day.
