Why Replace the Serpentine Belt?
The Serpentine Belt transfers power from the engine to most of your major engine components: power steering pump, water pump, alternator, and air conditioner compressor. Over time, the rubber belt will become brittle and crack. If the belt breaks, you will be left stranded. So it’s important to have your belts checked regularly.
