Ride: AUIII Fairmont Ghia

Location: Sydney/Annangrove
NSW, Australia

i had a slight squeaking noise at low km/revs, got it checked and it was a dodgy bearing, was gone for a few days and this morning a somewhat similar noise, but a lot louder, and seemed to stick around at a bit higher speed (20km) and would disappear once picked up some pace/revs......could also notice on odd occasion passing cars at 70/80km that the high pitch squeak would be constant for a little while and then pass again......

drove it round a bit longer and its not always there, just picks and chooses when to show itself

sound like bearing issue not fixed? other possibilities?

any feedback would be much appreciated!

CAREFULLY place a long handled solid screwdriver on each pulley/idler/water pump and on top of the rocker cover near the timing chain while the motor is running. CANT STRESS ENOUGH THE CAREFUL BIT !!!

Should be able to pinpoint what is causing the noise

EDIT: f**k im an idiot, just seen you do have a supercharger, and not just a 'supercharger-like' noise :roll:
