Hello.

The last couple of weeks, there's a new sound from under the hood.

Hard to explain the sound, but here's a video of it.
Maybe some of you can hear the difference between this and how it should sound like.


After my dad removed the belt on the image below, the sound went away.


My dad suspects that it's one of the wheels that has a red dot in them, that is the issue.

Do any of you know the part nr for these, or if they are available on ebay?
Here in Norway they cost a lot :)

It's a Suzuki Grand Vitara 2006 - DDiS (Diesel).

Some people have had success by removing these pulleys, and just replacing the bearings inside of them.
Saves buying new parts which cost a lot of $$.

Ensure the new bearings are full of grease before fitting.

I know that sound well, my 2010 model DDIS had the same problem, the only one so far! The three idler pulleys were replaced by Suzuki under warranty . The original ones were made of plastic, the replacements of steel. It seems to have sorted things. My dealer told me its a well known problem.
