Continental Belts - Belt & Hose maintenance: Start inspecting the serpentine belt system and the hoses at 60,000 and replace worn components by 90,000 miles or as advised by the manufacturer. Continental Belts and Hoses are engineered for perfect fit, form and function so you can install them with confidence. We know OE because we are OE.

FIND THE RIGHT CONTINENTAL BELT, KIT, OR MOLDED RADIATOR HOSE

The right Multi V-Belt for any car on the road

MULTI V-BELT OE TECHNOLOGY SERIES

  • Multi V-Belts run quieter and last longer and are original equipment on millions of domestic and import vehicles. Advanced EPDM rubber compounds virtually eliminate the chirps, squeaks and squeals associated with pulley misalignment. Superior design and materials deliver a high performance longer lasting, maintenance-free belt.
  • Stretch Belts feature self-tensioning technology and are built for drives that don’t have mechanical tensioners or an adjustment slot that allows for belt installation or tensioning.
  • Dual Sided Multi V-Belts have ribs on both sides of the belt to accommodate smaller diameter pulleys, backside drive pulleys and automatic tensioners.
  • Extreme HD Belts are designed for heavy-duty truck applications with extreme temperature buildup (hot and cold). Advanced EPDM polymers provide abrasion resistance and resist cracking and heat buildup, while improving flex life and reducing wear.

Premium Automotive Hose
Designed to Fit and Perform to OE Standard

Continental's molded hose is pre-shaped for specific applications and constructed to original equipment manufacturer's configurations and specifications. Our molded hose allows for ease of installation and full flow through tight bends. It also relieves stress on radiator connections. The tube and cover are made with EPDM rubber and are designed to resist heat, ozone, and electrochemical degradation. The hose meets or exceeds SAE J20R4EC D1 and JR0R3EC D1 specifications.

Continental premium automotive hose
  • Heater Hose
    Our premium heater hose line resists high underhood temperatures and anti-freeze coolants, flexes and forms, and matches up to any vehicle engine. This specially designed OEM style factory-molded heater hose fits today’s smaller, tight fitting engine compartments. The hose meets SAE J20R3 specifications, is available in an ID range from ¼” to 1” and is designed to transfer glycol-based coolants to and from the heater core.
  • Upper Radiator Hose
    This specially designed OEM style factory molded upper radiator hose fits specific make, model, year and engine applications, and meets SAE J20R4 specifications. It is engineered to transfer glycol-based coolants, resist electrochemical degradation, and handle high under-hood temperatures.
  • Lower Radiator Hose
    This specially designed OEM style factory molded lower radiator hose fits specific make, model, year and engine applications, and meets SAE J20R4 specifications. It is engineered to transfer glycol-based coolants, resist electrochemical degradation, and handle high under-hood temperatures. Lower hose applications may require an intersect hose with branches and factory quality connections to route coolant to transmission oil cooler or other coolant components.
  • By-pass Hose
    This specially designed OEM style factory-molded heater hose fits today’s smaller, tight fitting engine compartments. It meets SAE J20R3 specifications, is available in an ID range from ¼” to 1” and is designed to transfer glycol-based coolants at the thermostat housing.

MULTI V-BELT KITS OE TECHNOLOGY SERIES

Continental’s Multi V-belts, tensioners and idlers work as a system. Replacing a single component in the system is not recommended. Replacing all of the accessory drive components at the same time prevents premature and uneven belt wear, belt slippage and loss of tension. Continental’s kits include all the right parts in one place, providing today’s aftermarket industry with a smart replacement solution.
