The service life for a modern serpentine belt is typically around 100,000 miles so long as the belt has been properly tensioned and has not been exposed to contaminants such as oil, grease and anti-freeze. Belt life also depends on the condition of the pulleys and bearings. Those components (especially the bearings) can develop problems as the grease within oxidizes. So, when you replace a belt you actually have to inspect the ENTIRE circuit of rotating components driven by the belt and such an inspection will be performed by YourMechanic during any belt replacement. You can obtain an instant, detailed written quote, and schedule the belt replacement to suit your needs, by simply visiting YourMechanic’s serpentine belt replacement service page.
