For your Volkswagen to run properly, many parts under its hood must move. Belts make sure they all run properly. Your serpentine belt, for instance, works with your drive belts, and an idler pulley and belt tensioner help drive it. Together, they move parts in systems from your power steering and alternators to your water pump and more. Fan belts and AC compressor belts, however, move various heater and air conditioning parts. If you drive an older VW, it may have a timing belt. Some newer Volkswagen models, though, have a timing chain instead. Both turn your vehicle's crankshaft and camshaft, helping its engine's pistons and valves work in sync. Many other belts under your hood come from the VW factory as well.
Signs to Replace Your VW Belts
Belts all age, and sooner or later, they can break down, too. If your car or SUV isn't running well or at all, bad belts may be to blame. There are signs that's true, such as if you hear squeals, see damaged or loose belts, start to have problems with your battery and interior lighting, or if your engine misfires or overheats. Run an inspection to be sure. Replace the affected belts if you need to. Otherwise, change the belts in your Volkswagen according to your owner's manual's mileage schedule.
