I know I can find the serp belt cheaper online. Our local auto parts store has a Dayco belt for $51.00, I think that`s pretty high compared to what I`ve seen online...
The first one started to squeel pretty bad due to (I believe) dust getting imbedded into the belt. Went with another OEM from the dealer and no problems so far. Probably have 8-10K on the new belt.Pale Rider said:What would yopu guys use??? OEM or aftermarket, even though dayco is pretty good stuff...PR...
well I just changed out the belt at 31582 miles... so we`ll see how soon the squeek comes back... I won`t let the stealership touch my truck unless it`s something major and they even F` that up...Allahades said:The dealer replaced both my tensioner and belt per the TSB. Before the TSB came out, I had them replace the belt only, but it just started squealing again after a few thousand miles.
It took changing the tensioner to solve the problem.
If your X is still under warranty, I'd have the dealer replace both.
