      Replaced old AC and main drive belts at same time. Most don't realize there is a seperate AC belt on the Chevy trucks from the drive belt. Let's just say I have no more squeling in the mornings and I am happy.

          I purchased it for my H2 and it was an exact fit. I noticed better performance during the first test drive. I didn't realized how bad my old belt was slipping. Great product. I look forward to upgrading my other vehicles.

                        A:

                        It is common to replace the timing belt tensioner at the same time as the belt is replaced.The usual failure modes of timing belts are either stripped teeth (which leaves a smooth section of belt where the drive cog will slip) or delamination and unraveling of the fiber cores. Breakage of the belt, because of the nature of the high tensile fibers, is uncommon. Correct belt tension is critical - too loose and the belt will whip, too tight and it will whine and put excess strain on the bearings of the cogs. In either case belt life will be drastically shortened. Aside from the belt itself, also common is a failure of the tensioner. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                        I recommend that you go to your local Advance Auto Parts store and purchase a repair manual. The repair manual will have a diagram for the belt.
