      Comments about Drive-Rite V-Ribbed Belt:

      Belts were squealing during rain and humid days. My 2005 GMC Sierra crew cab has 130k miles. Decided to change belts and tensioners. Piece of cake install. Took less than 15 minutes. No squeal.

        Replace or do it again

        Comments about Drive-Rite V-Ribbed Belt:

        These reviews, on a part such as I replaced are a complete waste of my time. The part had fail with 165,000+ miles on the vehicle so one must replace it or more damage will occur. You need to revise your policy on these reviews to exclude parts that are essential to the operation of the vehicle. It is not the easiest part to replace, but it is not the most difficult either. If you are handy you can do it with out removing the skid plate as suggested in my repair manual. A good light source is needed and some common sense. The total time was about 40 minutes from start to finish. I replaced both belts at this time to ensure that I didn't have to do it again soon.

                It should not have popped up under drive belts? Received a short little pulley belt instead of a longer drive belt.
