Q: Belt noise

asked by on

I hear a belt noise. It might be the serpentine belt.

Many vehicles are equipped with a belt drive system to run the accessories. Some vehicles have an adjustable belt tensioner which can be used to tighten the adjustment on a loose drive belt. In other cases an automatic tensioner is used and should be replaced if it has failed. Have an experienced technician inspect your drive belt system to diagnose and repair your concern.
