Sounds like a defective belt, an improper install, or a bad pulley which is causing wear. Was this belt installed because the last one broke or because it was time to change it?

Did you lever the new belt on or do it by the book? You may just have been unlucky with something striking the belt but a good quality belt properly fitted should last years.
Look for other causes for the belt to break. Pulleys, alignment, etc

The serpentine belt is slipping when wet. Either the plastic shield on the bottom of the van is missing, or the belt is not being kept tight by the tensioner.

Can u show me how to install a serpin belt on a 1998 ford escort


Here's a website with your diagram and instructions. The serpentine belt is also called a drive belt.
Go to 2carpros.com. Click on INFORMATION on the right side. Scroll down to serpentine and timing belt diagrams. Then enter your car's description. The serpentine belt diagram is below the timing belt information.

if the compressor bearing seized or fell apart than that would cause the belt to break or fall off. You cannot bypass the a/c compressor with a shorter belt. You can either replace the compressor or get a compressor bypass pulley but then you will not have a/c ever again until you install a compressor.

On a 2000 Grand Am the serpentine belt came off... upon inspection it appears that the tension wheel has broken. How can this be replaced?


I had the same problem with my son's 1992 Pontiac Sunbird. The tension wheel for that model was held in place by mounting bolts on the back side of the tension wheel. Simply remove the bolts and install the new tension wheel.
