Serpentine Belt Replacement > How can I tell if I need belt(s)? > Fluid Contamination


Appearance/Symptoms: Belt may appear shiny. Belt material may be soft and spongy. Top of belt ribs may be pointed rather than flat. Tensile cords may be visible at bottom of belt grooves.


Cause: Coolant, oil or other fluid leak. Fluids may soften rubber compounds and allow belt rips to "bottom out" in pulley grooves creating pointed rib profile.















Solution: Repair coolant, oil or fluid leak to prevent further contamination. Clean pulley surfaces. Replace belt.
