AC belt Suzuki Grand Vitara

7 posts in this topic

Anyone have any knowledge of these. I have tried three belts and 2 were to small and 1 too big. There just isn't enough adjustment on the tensioner to get the belt on(stupid design). I even took one bolt out to see if that would give me room to at least get the belt under it, nope. I have tried belts from both Napa and Orielly to no avail. The belt I have is right in between the 2 sizes that Gates has. Do I need to get some sort of unusual belt?

The napa belt that is too short will work if you take out the one bolt that will allow the tensioner to travel a little further. However the belts are not metric and will make noise! All suzuki belts that I replace come from the dealer!! Less hassle and no problems with noise!!

OK...thanks. So I need to find a Suzuki dealer. Sounds like a trip to Duluth is in my near future.

If it is out of your way, I am sure the dealer would ship the belt to you. It would be alot cheaper then driving out of your way just for a belt.

Upnorth, is the belt cracked, broke or turning orange? Turning orange is bad. Typically means an a/c compressor may be in your near future. The good news, winters almost hear! grin

It is not cracked but it is checking pretty bad. There is 100,000 + miles on this thing and I figure it is time for a change. It does seem to be a very dark brown.
