Re: [Help] Serpentine problems/questions

I have also seen belts put on one groove off on one pulley. That will cut the outer edge off.

Many front wheel drive cars it is not easy to replace. Last one I did, you had to remove the engine mount to replace the belt.

Yeah, not only is this front wheel drive but it's a FORD so it's back to the mechanic on Monday.

Well, removing an engine mount may make it a slightly non-trivial job....

Interestingly, I have replaced my serpentine belt 3 times because in 2 cases it was squeling so loud that I couldn't tolerate it, but I could never see anything physically wrong with the belt. I keep one of old belts in my car, just in case. I usually drive a RWD vehicle, so a belt change in my case is a piece of cake.
