Drive belts allow vehicle parts such as the alternator, the air conditioning (AC) system and the steering and water pumps to function. Enter your registration here to search for the rubber drive belts that will fit your vehicle.
A drive belt is typically made of rubber for flexibility, so they tend to wear down as a result of the extended use they endure, particularly in older vehicles with a lot of mileage on the clock. The composition of rubber means that a taut belt is used to operate multiple mechanical parts of a car at once, so it is important to keep your belts in full working order - without any nicks or cracks. You can expect a new drive belt to last for more 50,000 miles in consistently good driving conditions, so they do not need replacing very frequently. If your vehicle endures heavy use on a regular basis, though, it would be prudent to check on the belt once in a while. Once you have found the right one for your vehicle by entering your make and model or registration number in the tool above, drive belts are relatively easy to fit due to their location in the engine bay.
