2002 Yaris belt squeal

I used a Goodyear Gatorback belt to stop belt squeal.

I have been using Gatorback belts for many years.

The Gatorback belt will most likely not be available at local auto parts stores.

Several sellers sell Gatorback belts on the internet.

The Gatorback belt will (run in) (work in) become more flexible as time goes by.

Retighten the belt at a later date as required.

-----

More research shows that Goodyear belts is now Continental.

www.thequietbelt.com

Continental now has a New Serpentine Belt that is called the Stretch Belt has Built In Belt Tensioner Technology.

The Continental belt web site says Do Not use the Stretch Belt on vehicles that have spring loaded belt tensioner.

The New Stretch Belt is designed for vehicles that have no automatic belt tensioner.

That's interesting but I don't see one for the Yaris listed.

I also have a gatorback belt. I have retightened it several times and it continues to squeal. I will probably do this mod. I do love the belt though. I bought one for my 2000 Tundra and it is awesome.

i have a 2007 Yaris sedan and had the belt replaced last week. The squealing became worse! Even squels as idle or low rpms.

But why do some Yaris squeal and some don't?

also, i presume you shaved off this yellow part, but why? Wouldn't the bolt fit in regardless?
