Re: [Help] Serpentine problems/questions

WTH happened there? How did it get that far out?

This is the replacement belt that was installed yesterday.

I looked at rockauto and it looks like the wrong pulley was put on it.






The smooth area should be nearest the compressor but on mine it's nearest the outer edge. Unfortunately there's only about a $75 difference between replacing the whole unit and just replacing the pulley. Gotta love labor costs!

Sorry to hear it. Too bad this can't be remediated by the bozos that installed it. For free!

I'd be in someone's face over this.

Working on figuring out which shop did it but it's out of warranty anyway.

I think I'd try anyway. Nothing to lose, right?

The original mechanic will be replacing it for $300 total, saving $400 over the mechanic who diagnosed it. I'm happy with the price.
