drive belt keep tearing apart
My car has a manual transmission.
Hello, thank you for writing in. The drive belt may be having one or more of several issues. The first thing to try is buying a different belt from a different manufacturer. Verify that you have the correct belt. Chances are, one of the pulleys is dirty or damaged causing the extra wear and tear on the belt. You will want to go over every pulley and make sure they are perfect. There should be no dirt, plastic, or other contaminants on the pulleys. If any pulleys have been replaced in the past, you will want to make sure those repairs are holding. The tensioner pulley which is designed to keep the belt tight and aligned will can also cause these symptoms. If the belt is allowed to slip off or move at all, it will make contact with surfaces that will tear it up. For more help resolving the drive belt issue, contact our service department.
