Many of the key components and systems of your vehicle are operated or powered by a rubber belt attached to the engine drive shaft. With the help of pulleys, these belts drive most of the vehicle's engine fans, pumps, air conditioning compressors, power steering systems and alternators. An alternator is a very important part that provides power when the engine is running and charges the battery.
There are Rubber V Belt or serpentine belts that will run one or more systems in your vehicle. Once the engine is running, the belt runs continuously. The high cover temperature plus the constant bending of the belt will eventually wear the belt. Eventually, even the best belts will burst. When the running system and attachments stop running.
According to the National Automobile Council statistics, today there are 19% of the car to replace the wear belt. According to research statistics, many vehicles after four years of operation, rubber V belt failure rate increased sharply. The automatic belt tensioner is a metal device having a pulley attached to the engine. It applies tension to the belt by means of an internal spring device in contact with the belt. In order to make the belt work properly, you need a tight operation. The appropriate tension allows the belt to come into contact with the various components, as long as there is sufficient pressure to provide power, will not slide into the accessories of the pulley groove, and not because of tension and heat, thus reducing the belt life.
Replacement of belts, pulleys or tensioners is relatively simple or smaller for repair. However, failure can lead to other damage, and failure can lead to more time and money. In order to keep the normal order of the vehicles do not need to replace the 1/5 cars on the belt of the belt, when they appear to wear signs, please replace to reduce the chance of an accident.
