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.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
