Probably, a little. However, they are required for every other function your car uses, including the generator. So you kinda need it.
all new cars have serpentine belts for the most part.
This car doesn't have a serpentine belt. It has 2 drive belts.
A rubber belt that goes around all pulleys & has idlers as tensioners. On cars there are either v belts (belts shaped like a "v" that are tightened by moving accessories) or serpentine, which is usually one ribbed belt with idlers.
There should only be one serpentine belt on this model and year car.
First of all, they are the same as the fan belts on any other car. The fan belt(s) are the serpentine drive belt(s) that turn your fan and other accessories (like alternator, compressor, power steering) They are often referred to as serpentine belts, drive belts, and accessory drive belts. The are located on the outside of your engine, driven by the main pulley (crankshaft pulley). R. Mesyef
If it has multiple belts, remove the belt which goes to the compressor. If it has a serpentine belt, reroute the belt so it bypasses the compressor.
"Brakes" make the whole car slow down.
When I had mines done they called it a serpentine belt and the installation was quick and minimal under $100.00 including labor and the belt.AnswerAll cars have drive belts. If, however the car only has one belt and it "snakes" up and over the pulleys it is termed a "serpentine" (snake) belt because of the way it is routed around the pulleys. Older cars have usually 2 or 3 belts that do not overlap or go over/under the pulleys. The belts simply go around the outside of the pulleys and are tensioned by a manual adjustment. Serpentine belts usually have an automatic/no-adjustable tensioner for the belt. Hope this helps!
