Default Drive Belt Question - 09-26-2019, 10:36 AM

Does anyone know the length of the stock drive belt (serpentine belt) on the VR30? Reading about issues with them shredding, has anyone tried one that isn't OEM?

The belt is very tight on this platform. If your gonna do pulls turn off ur ac so the belt tensioner doesnt add extra tension. You should be fine to do pulls as long as AC is off

it's not the belt that is the issue. Its the alignment of the AC compressor being slightly off causing the belt to shift on the tensioner. when it happens, it may slide off and will then get shredded. If you hear the belt squeal, don't wait until it finally breaks to take it in to get fixed. If you are still under warranty, it's a free fix.
