The serpentine belt was named for the winding path it makes through your vehicle’s vital components—powering your alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning, and (in some cases) your water pump. Your serpentine belt will most likely last between 50,000 to 100,000 miles, but it will wear out eventually.
Over time the serpentine belt may get worn smooth and start to slip, crack, or fray. A failing serpentine belt can also make a loud squeal that will certainly get your attention. You could also see problems arise with your air conditioning or power steering as the belt wears out.
Check your owner’s manual to see when your manufacturer recommends you have your serpentine belt replaced in order to avoid potential failure. If your certified technician sees signs of wear and tear during regular inspections before you have reached the recommended mileage, they will recommend you have the serpentine belt replaced quickly.
Our technicians are fully trained in serpentine belt replacement and will make sure the new belt is installed correctly so your vehicle can get you where you’re going safely.
