Drive Belt Replacement | Common Services at Shingle Springs Subaru

Schedule a drive belt replacement service at Shingle Springs Subaru

Once known better as fan belts, since they were used to drive the radiator fan, virtually every modern engine uses at least one drive belt. These belts allow the engine to power other important accessories on your car, such as the air conditioner, alternator and various electrical components. The belts that drive them are made of strong rubber and sometimes even have kevlar in them - the stuff that goes inside bullet-proof vests - so they can last for years and years! However, once they fail, the accessories they're connected to won't work. This can mean a loss of things like air conditioning, power steering or even mean the car won't start at all. That's why it's a good idea to keep an eye on the condition of your belts, so you can replace them before they start to go bad.

Why Do Drive Belts Need to Be Replaced Regularly?

As the belts spin, all the force exerted on them causes them to stretch out over time. In the old days, as part of an engine tune-up, you would have the mechanic adjust the tension on all your drive belts so they would work properly. Today's modern engines use much stronger belts and automatic tensioners, so replacing them is easier and faster than ever. But they'll still wear out. At Shingle Springs Subaru, our expert technicians will use belts approved by the Subaru factory for maximum life and a perfect fit in your Subaru.

How Often Should I Replace the Drive Belts in my Subaru?

Under ideal conditions, a drive belt could potentially last up to 100,000 miles or more! However, dirt and fluids that collect on the belts can cause the rubber to break down faster. What's more, individual driving style matters. If you tend to drive more aggressively, or like to accelerate with full throttle, your belts may experience more wear and tear and need to be replaced earlier. For this reason, Subaru recommends having your belts inspected regularly. For example, the owner's manual of the 2017 Subaru Outback says that its drive belts should be inspected every 30,000 miles. Our factory-trained techs will be able to evaluate the condition of your belts, and recommend a simple replacement if failure is imminent.
