Preventing serious damages
Multi V belt condition should be inspected as a precautionary measure during servicing in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications. Irregularities are then identified in good time. If the Multi V belt slips or faces misalignments when installed, it may tear apart. As a result the engine heat system or electrical or power steering system may fail proper functioning and cause serious problems. To avoid that, a belt should be changed under the following circumstances:
- The maximum lifetime has been reached
- The belt is damaged/worn
It is recommended to change the whole belt system ( tensioner and idler) as a kit since all moving parts are subjected to the same time caused the main bel malfunctioning.
