Hey Guys,

I was reading through the owners manual last night, and I didn't see any mention on how often (roughly) that the accessory drive belt and/or tensioners should be replaced.

Does anyone have any guidance on these parts?

Thanks!

Serpentine belts last a long time. Usually there will be noise before they fail. The tensioner is what fails. If you see cracks in the rubber that are parallel to the grooves or fraying of the fabric, then of course replace both the tensioner and the belt.

How long is a long time? Like 50k miles long?

I would guess a lot more, like 150k.
