V6 Exige high RPM squeak

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As above just noticed this when changing from first to second at 7k, very brief right on the change. Almost sounds like a belt. Clutch is perfect and not noticed it third to forth. Was hoping it's not clutch slip...

Mine chirps very occasionally if I'm harsh with clutch re-engagements on up-changes, I've assumed it was belt dynamics as well and haven't looked into it further.

Hi Arun, Exactly harsh I would say too. I rarely drive it and it did it when I first bought it when I nearly stalled it giving it far too high revs, since then I forgot about it and it's been driven and services by Lotus Silverstone. It is Chris Buer's old liquid yellow car so think it was treated well, just a few track days and only 8k on the clock.
