Yesterday when cleanin the GU, i decided to pop the bonnet,
clean out the enginebay of all the leaves, grease up the battery terminals n stuff..
Whilst i was admirin the enginebay with ciggy in hand as you do,

in the corner of my eye i saw my can of CRC Beltgrip on the shelf.

Heck why not, it couldnt hurt..

Lets give the GU some love, i thought.

Got down under the engine and squirted all the belts,
Now proud of my achievement, i cranked it over.

WTF?? ive destroyed the quiet engine i had,
now rattlles squeeks, Panic set in immediately.

Rang my Mechanic, to see if he had a hoist free, and bolted down.
He pissed himself laughin at me,
his comment was... that belt grip sh=chit, is his arch enemy,
does more bad than good,
and we reversed my love actions with
good ol Greek Mechanics Windex... WD40

and violla, all back to normal..

Anyone else found that this CRC Beltgrip has done this to a diesel,
coz my can is almost empty, been usin it for litterally years on so many cars.

I just put a new belt on mine to try to stop the noise, WD40 would quieten it down but after it would get worse, anyway I think its my aircon pulley, can you loob these or not.

Candle wax is all you need for rattles and squeaks, even V belts love some candle wax from time to time, makes them quite as!

And your rear door seals, hint hint

Really? ****, what's in a CRD? I have a can I used after going through heap of water at Christmas on Moreton because my belt started making noise. It fixed it and havn't had any problems since but if it's not meant for teh CRD motor belts then I'll toss it.

i do not want to know what you do with a candle and your rear door seals :confused:
Careful...
Apparantly this sort of comment can get you belted with Yom's big stick!:lol:

Never even heard of 'belt grip'. Belts squeal - tighten pully. That don't work? Replace all belts.

We used to use belt grip on our hands as kids to get more grip on the footy in the wet. So its not good for nothing.

Please explain :)
Candle wax will stop your rear door squeaking when it get all dusty, just leave a candle in the back and when it starts to squeak on a trip, just apply to the rubber seals and the areas on the door they touch
