Serpentine belt replacement: here’s how to put on a serpentine belt yourself.
Immediately replace serpentine belts that show any signs of fraying, cracking or glazing. Replacing this belt on your vehicle may require specialized removal tools. Consult your repair manual.
Be careful when releasing tension from the belt. Spin the tensioner pulley by hand before installing the new belt. Noisy, loose or overly tight tensioner pulleys require replacement. Also check the water pump for leakage. Double-check the belt and tensioner for correct tightness before starting engine.
Using only the best serpentine belts will give you the most mileage between service intervals. Visit Advance Auto Parts for high quality auto parts.
Why serpentine belts should be replaced every 30,000-60,000 miles:
The serpentine, or s-belt, has gone far to simplify the operation of under hood pumps and pulleys. This one belt runs every engine driven accessory. Your engine turns the water pump, alternator, a/c compressor and power steering pump via one long belt. Problems arise, though, when this particular belt breaks, so replace your s-belt at regular intervals.
