Adventures in Auto Repair


Son's Contour came home on a tow truck. Snapped serpentine belt. Choke each year when I drop $170 or so for AAA+ but we seem to always use it.

The culprit.
Needs to be stretched before you try to install it.

Where it goes.



It is cold, the wind is blowing, I'm old and decrepit, and I'm not broke. Solution?

Yep, I wimped out. Remember a few years ago putting a water pump in that car. Not fun! Replaced the serpentine belt at the same time. Tight quarters putting a breaker bar on the tensioner pulley. Easiest from underneath.
