when should the serpentine belt be changed

My car has 77100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The drive belts on your vehicle should be replaced every 120,000 miles. However, you should regularly perform a visual inspection of the belts obviously looking for unusual wear, damage, or defects. In addition, if any noises from the pulleys or accessories that are driven by the belts arise, those should be checked out. As you can see, drive belts made of modern materials last a long time. YourMechanic provides a complete range of mobile maintenance and repair services. Should you need other services such as a professional oil and filter change do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
