Hey all my AU II Wagon has just recently developed a squeal or whistle type sound when I accelerate. Normally Id think it was the belt but it sounds a little different than that ...any ideas ?

Cheers.

Ok , I had that in the back of mind that it was maybe a bearing..... I have an oil leak from the tensioner too, so might aswell get it all done at once.
Is it a big job? .. expensive ??
