V Belt : A V belt is a type of belt shaped like the letter “V” used on automotive applications. The v belt is used to rotate accessories such as the alternator, ac compressor, power steering pump, air pump and or water pump from the power of the engine.
V belt failure will cause its accessories not to spin. The vehicle may not charge, cool the engine, have working ac or power steering may get hard. Some v belts may cause more than one problem at the same time. Other problems with v belts may be squeaking noises that come from the engine area.
