    the more expensive Dayco had bad reviews and this cheaper no name had good reviews...so what else do you need to convince ya?

    Installation was fairly simple considering the room you have to manuver your hands. Out with the old squealer and in with the new belt total less than 20 minutes...I used a coupon for about 5 bucks off to so around $20 bucks and 20 minutes for silence and piece of mind is priceless!

      Comments about Drive-Rite V-Ribbed Belt:

      Got tired of listening to the belt squeak on my 07 Taurus. Tensioner and all pulleys/bearings were still good. I checked the alignment of the pulleys and they were good. Spraying on belt conditioner only stopped the squeak for a few minutes. Replaced the belt and its quiet again.

            My nephew is in school to be a mechanic. He and his dad had a hard time in the Taurus engine getting the belt on. It's not the belt's fault. It's the way the engine is designed.

                I replaced this because I still had the original one at 225,000 miles. Installation was quick and easy and this was just as good as the more expensive one. Can't go wrong with Advance Auto Parts!

                        • CUSTOMER CARE

                          A:

                          Start the Escort, turn the steering wheel as far to the right as it will go and then shut the car off. Raise the hood and set the prop rod into the hood to keep the hood from falling down. Insert the belt tensioner tool into the belt tensioner and use it to move the tensioner pulley out of the belt’s path. Move the belt off the tensioner pulley with one hand while continuing to hold pressure on the tensioner with the tool. Slowly release the pressure on the tensioner once you have the belt off the pulley. Pull the tool out of the tensioner and set it in the engine well within reach. Remove the belt from the rest of the pulleys by hand. Depending on your arm length and girth, you may need to get at the lower pulleys through the right front wheel well or from underneath the Escort. Pull the serpentine belt out of the engine well and compare the length to the new belt. The old belt should be no more than one inch longer than the new one. Over time, the serpentine belt will begin to stretch from use, hence the variation in length. Route the new belt around the crank pulley and then around each of the accessory pulleys, leaving the tensioner pulley as the last unbelted one. Refer often to the belt routing diagram printed on the fan shroud or underside of the hood during this step. If you route the belt improperly it will not fit properly and can result in serious damage to the Escort, injury to yourself or both. Reinsert the tensioner tool into the belt tensioner assembly and pull the tensioner pulley back once more. Slip the belt over the tensioner pulley and hold it in place as you carefully release the pressure on the tensioner with the tool. Pull the tool out when finished.
