Honda Genuine drive belts are designed to avoid stretching and deterioration over time to be durable and maintain performance for years.
What is it?
Drive belts are made of a durable rubber compound. Since drive belts function in a hot engine compartment, and near oily substances, they need to be made from materials that can last.
Honda Genuine Drive belts are not only designed specifically for your Honda, but also to perform in these adverse conditions.
What does it do?
In some models, Drive belts provide power to the vehicle’s water pump, alternator, power steering pumps, and air conditioning compressors.
The drive belt transfers some of the power generated by the motor to these different mechanical systems when the engine rotates.
When to replace?
Drive belts, like other rubber-based products will degrade over time, and wear out with use.
A worn out drive belt will oftentime squeak or squeel – a warning sign that it is time to be replaced urgently. A broken drive belt will prevent a vehicle from running, but it can also permanently damage the vehicle’s different systems and lead to extremely costly repairs.
These can be avoided with regular maintenance, inspection, and proactively replacing according to the manufacturer’s recommendations or as needed.
Consult with your service advisor at Parkway Honda to determine the ideal replacement schedule for the drive belt in your Honda vehicle.
