Hi everyone, recently I've started to hear A loud screeching noise when driving along, I've only heard it at speed from 50-70mph and can't really tell what it is.
My initial thoughts are that it's the auxillary belt but it looks ok? Has anyone else had this problem.
My car is a 2.2 type S with around 56000 miles on the clock.

Just spoken to the wife and she said it was doing it to her yesterday just driving normal b roads 30mph.
I haven't noticed anything while stationary or while revving, I'm on my lunch in an hour so I'll go out and see if it will do it while revving with the bonnet up.
Also when I do here the noise while driving I dip the clutch and can still hear it, the noise just comes and goes for a bit

I didn't know it was such a time slip between here and Middlesbrough :popcorn2:
I get lunch between 12:00 and 13:00 - not 16:30 - I'd be starving by then

No luck guys at hearing the noise stood idle or under revving, I had a good look at the belt and the outer surface seems dry and rough to the touch and appears to be covered on tiny cracks.

It's a Cat.

Not a catalytic converter but a real Cat.
I thought it was fergal1's wife until that was ruled out in his second post so you may be on to something...

Just took the car for a spin out, did 40 miles or so and not a peep out of it. Think I'll just do as relic says and just change the belt.
Is the belt something that can be done at home or is it a Honda jobbie?
Rear brakes are a little low but shouldn't be the problem but will change them soon as I can just to eliminate them.

If a belt squeals it normally starts in damp air first.
There was a lot of moisture/dew in the air round me in the past week.
My silicon piping has a fine mist of moisture all over it.

They ain't much I can do now apart from wait until it becomes more prominent and I can pin point it's whereabouts.
Changing the rear pads and discs at the weekend now, upgrading pads to green stuff and using oem disc's ;-)
