check tightness of belt and remember overtightening the belt will cause it to screech as well as undertightening. early e-series are b**ch for that.

yeah well normaly when things are BLODDY TIGHT!!! they dont slip and its still slipping so maybe the pullys have polished and theres no real surface to grip on

also badkiwi i used belt grip it looked like candle wax so if that didnt do teh job i cant see soap working but i cant see any harm in trying it i have plenty of soap in the bathroom
cheers

mate only trying to pass on experiance from working on my own car and several other E series with the same problem!! there should be a fair amount of give in the belts.
But if you wanna do it your way thats fine.

I think the only 'hard' part is sourcing an xg/xh (whatever it is) pulley/tightener setup.

yeah im spewing tehre was one at the wreckers the other day
i put thet belt dressing on and it still screeches
my alternator belt is not as tight as i thought it is it still has A bit of play in it should i tighten it more so there is litle bend in it
also my alternator gauge is showing in the middle and low in stead of high and 3 quarters of the way maybe could it be my alternator insides no spinning properly there for making the belt slip
p.s the alternator is only 4 months old
