When is it Time for Car Belt Replacement?
- After Regular Wear and Tear: Most car belts, also known as serpentine belts, need to be replaced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. That being said, some belts are tensioned manually and should be adjusted periodically.
- When the Belt Starts to Decay: Even new rubber production technology will not save your belt from eventually getting old. If you notice the belt is cracking, appears shiny or glazed, or is starting to fray, you need to replace it. A decaying belt will eventually snap putting you in a tough spot on the road.
- When the Belt Causes Chirps or Squeals: As the serpentine belts gets older, it tends to stretch and loosen on the pulley system. At times, fluid leaks can also lead to belt slippage. If the belt begins to slip, you will hear the squealing squeaking noise of the rubber rubbing against other parts of the car. If you hear these sounds, you should get your car or truck into a trusted repair shop immediately.
- When You Notice Poor System Performance: Since the serpentine belt provides power to a variety of accessories such as the alternator, water pump, power steering, and air conditioning, if the those begin acting up you may have a bad belt to blame.
- When an Annual Inspection Reveals It’s Time Your vehicle likely has recommended mileage for when it’s time to replace the serpentine belt. However, belts sometimes need replacing before the recommended mileage maker. Similarly, sometimes belts last beyond the recommendation. Regular inspection by a qualified mechanic can help you determine when to safely replace the belt.
