          Comments about Driveworks V-Ribbed Belt:

          My old belt didnt break, but when my alternator went bad I noticed the belt had some age cracks in it so I figured I would do the belt at the same time. The new belt fit perfect and is whisper quiet, so squeaks or whining.

          Side note: My truck had about 6 different belts it possibly could have had on it, and it was very hard to tell for sure which one to order. The salesman at the store was very helpful as he took my old belt (lucky I brought it with me) and matched it up so I was sure I had the correct one.

                      Happy to help you Tim! The amp rating for the alternator can be found with various methods we can cross reference with the original part number, another method that you can do is calling your local Chevrolet dealer with your vin number.

                      A:

                      Instructions: 1. Open the hood and locate the adjustment screw that controls tension on the serpentine belt. This screw is typically a wing-nut located near the alternator and is in plain view. 2. Place the socket end of the socket wrench over the wing-nut and turn clockwise to apply tension. It is likely not possible to adjust this by hand, so check your socket set for a socket that will fit snugly over the wing-nut so that you can tighten the nut, thereby applying more tension to the serpentine belt. 3. Check the tension of the belt periodically. To do this, grab any area of the belt that is between two pulleys with your fingers. There should be approximately 1/4 inch play in the belt for most vehicles. 4. Do a secondary check of the belt tension. To do this, turn on the vehicle and examine the belt in motion. Listen specifically for whining coming from the alternator. If you notice any whine or "pulsing" sound from the alternator, your belt tension is too tight and will damage the alternator. In this case, turn the adjustment screw counterclockwise to loosen the belt and recheck the tension. 5. Do a final check. You can also check for continuous power from all your accessories. Turn all your accessories on at once. If you notice any abnormalities, then your belt tension is incorrect. For example, if your headlights pulse, then it is because the alternator is not delivering a constant charge to your battery. This is normally because your belt tension is too tight. Check the heater fan, air conditioning, etc. to make sure that every component is functioning normally.

                    Is this the correct belt for the 4.3 with A/C? I tried to install and it is too loose even when I adjust the tensioner fully.

                      I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. This will have many of the locations of parts needed for a variety of repairs.
