See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

Dayco ela (elastic) or stretch belts are specifically designed for two, three, and four point drives that are designed to use self-tensioning belts. Although these belts may look like standard poly rib belts, they are very different. Vehicles that are manufactured with stretch belts must replace them with stretch belts and are not interchangeable with standard constructed belts of their same size. Stretch belts have unique installation instructions depending on the OE application. Installation may require a specialized tool for the application or a simple zip tie. Do not attempt to install by prying the belt on the pulleys. Dayco provides detailed instructions on the reverse side of the sleeve.

Product Features:
  • Utilizes a proprietary EPDM construction that is designed to elongate over the fixed pulley system, and then maintain the required belt tension over the life of the belt
  • Specially developed polyamide tensile member, which allows for high elongation required for installation, yet provides the proper tension maintenance properties to transmit the accessory loads demanded for the drive
  • Incorporates a wear resistant EPDM rib material, along with a highly elastic EPDM cushion rubber that surrounds the polyamide tensile cord, thus providing the required adhesion and flexibility to maintain lasting performance
  • These specially designed elastic belts have self-tensioning capabilities required by specific OE drives designed for a stretch belt

      Hi Marc, good question! A serpentine belt, also known as a multi-vee, poly-v, or multi-rib belt, is a single, continuous belt used to drive multiple peripheral devices in an automotive engine, such as an alternator, power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor, air pump, etc.
