Accessory drive belts wind their way around such components as the power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor, and alternator propelling them when the engine is running. While older vehicles used separate V-belts for each component, newer vehicles have a single serpentine belt to drive them all. Dayco approaches the market differently from most of its competition, believing that one serpentine belt construction will not perform best with all applications. This serpentine belt is designed and manufactured to provide more than just OEM required fit, quality, and performance; it delivers the finest solution to troublesome drive problems by providing excellent durability, stability, and prolonged service life.
