Serpentine Belt Replacement Service

Serpentine Belt Replacement at Columbia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

In short, a serpentine belt is an extremely long belt that connects everything from your alternator, air conditioner, water pump, and power steering pump together to ensure that they operate efficiently. In older cars, there is usually a myriad of belts that can wear down at inconsistent intervals making it a challenge and pain for replacement. However, modern vehicles feature a single belt that is built for reliability and if inspected regularly will last for many miles.
