How to Change Serpentine Belt
This is one of the most simplest task you can do at home and it
will about 30 minutes or less. Serpentine belt is very
important. It power the alternator, mechanical fan, A/C
compressor and Power steering. I have an incident that my
serpentine belt broke and I lost all power. Alternator was
dead, power steering wasn't working and so on. I recommend
you should chance this belt once every 50-60k miles. There
are many aftermarket serpentine belt u can get. One of my
all time favorite would be the
original Lexus serpentine belt.
The cost is slightly higher, but will worth the money. The
second trust worthy brand would be Gates. Gates make great
quality belts for competitive price. Here are some
aftermarket serpentine belt suppliers.
Gates part number is K060882
ACDELCO part number is CK882
Kragen Brand 6PK22250
The pictures below are very self explanatory. I tried to
give u details explanation. Right before you take out the
belt. Its belt to use your left on the socket to release
the tensor and use your right hand to remove the belt. I
also included a serpentine diagram. Good luck.
