Belt noise

I thought I had the front brake noise that's been discussed in another post. I took it to the dealer and after the service tech took it for a quick around the block he diagnosed it as noise from the drive belt. A couple shots of silicon spray to the belt and all the noise is gone. Just a FYI

Belt noise would be a sign of something out of alignment or the tension wrong. Letting them spray it might not have been a perminent fix. I would have it checked out again.

+1 Belts aren't just "noisy" without a reason. MaKaw has a habit of really making things tight at the factory. I'd check the belt tension to be sure.

Real gun control is having the ability to hit your target.
