Fix Serpentine belt noise on a Lexus
Lexus has discovered a problem with serpentine belt noise on some of its models that can cause a chirping or squealing noise on startup. If you own a 2001-04 GS 430, LS 430, or a 2002-04 SC 430 Lexus, and have a chirping serpentine belt nois you may want to replace the factory belt with a new part number. The new belt is made with a different rubber compound that eliminates the slipping on cold starts. The new part number is #90916-02586 for the GS & LS models, and 90916-02584 for the SC model.
