Subaru Serpentine Belt Replacement Service

Replacing Your Serpentine Belt

Belts are Subaru's best friend. Trust us. What does your serpentine belt do and why does it matter? Your serpentine belt is how parts are turned. What do we mean? Your alternator, power steering, and more all need something that moves them (kind of like a conveyor belt) to have them rotate and perform their functions.

Does Your Serpentine Belt Need to be Inspected

  • Things that need power, like your power steering, begin to fail
  • Suddenly, your battery begins to fail
  • Stalled engine
  • Check engine light - add this to the list of things this illuminated light could mean
  • Squealing noise, this happens when the belt and pulley are no longer working correctly. What does this mean? This means that this is the early phase of your serpentine belt not working correctly
