We have searched for neutrinoless τ lepton decays into ℓ and V 0, where ℓ stands for an electron or muon, and V 0 for a vector meson (φ, ω, K*0 or ̄K* 0), using 543 fb-1 of data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider. No excess of signal events over the expected background is observed, and we set upper limits on the branching fractions in the range (0.7- 1.8) ×10-7 at the 90% confidence level. These upper limits include the first results for ℓω as well as new limits that are 3.6 - 9.6 times more restrictive than our previous results for ℓφ, ℓKπ and ℓ ̄K *0.
