- Carlisle, UK.
With regard to my squealing noise (which went away and has now returned intermittently), I had a mechanic-in-training friend look at it this evening, I couldn't get the gearbox oil filler cap undone so went looking for other possibilities. He though the alternator belt was a bit loose so decided to undo the holding bolts to slide the unit upwards to tighten the belt. Except with bolts loosened, the unit wouldn't move - only a couple of mm give in either direction. Do we need to take the wheel/ liner off to get it moved or is there some other way? This is an 899 by the way, I am led to believe the unit is different on other engines
