Inleiding

The serpentine belt is a long, winding, snaking belt that keeps your air conditioning, alternator, and power steering pump running smoothly and effectively. You need to check your serpentine belt every 50,000 to 60,000 miles. If you see cracks on your belt or you noticed any one of these (loss of power steering, squealing noise, the engine overheating, or the belt looks bad) that means it's time to replace your old belt.

  5. Install the new belt by lining up all belt ribs in the pulley grooves and wrap it around. Start with the A/C Pulley and then wrap it around the tensioner and move on until you end up with the water pump pulley. When you ready to put the belt back on the alternator, reduce the tension on the belt by using the socket wrench and then slip the belt right over the top.
