Accessory Drive Belts

Print

Adjustment



The accessory drive belt is automatically adjusted by the non-adjustable tensioner.

Belt Tension Inspection



Belt replacement is necessary for any or all of the following conditions:



Excessive wear
 
Frayed cords
 
Severe glazing
 

The accessory drive belt may develop minor cracks across the ribbed side (1) due to reverse bending. These minor cracks are considered normal and acceptable. Parallel cracks (2) are not considered normal and should be cause for belt replacement.


NOTE
Do not use any type of belt dressing or restorer on the accessory drive belt.
