    When I started my car this morning the belts started stretching. Do the belts need to be replaced? Is there something easier and cheaper?

    Tightening the belts usually cures this.  Easy fix

    Hi, I just noticed that auto correct let me down again. The belt that goes around the alternator makes noise. Mostly when I’m letting the clutch out and giving the car gas. I watched a YouTube video yesterday about diagnosing the prop. It said if you squirt water on the belt if it stops making noise, it’s the belt and not a pulley when I squirted water on the noise stopped. Does the belt need to be replaced?

    the safe bet is replace both belts…the AC/PS belt has to come off to replace the alternator belt
