Visually check the belt to see if the piece you found was indeed from the belt. If so you should replace it ASAP If you dont you might end up stuck on the side of the road or worse! The belt drives the power steering pump the alternator the A/C and several other things.

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.


You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....

Removing Camshaft pulley on 2.5 Dohc forester motor


To replace the timing belt back guard you will have to remove both pulleys.There is a small bolt under each pulley holding the belt guard Use a large socket to hold the pulley while you break the bolt loose with a 17mm socket. I have just done this while replacing my head gaskets due to coolant boiling from the gasket leak.

Rattling sound when accelerating on 2007 Forester


On mine, I got under there and there are rocks rattling in the heat shield. There are factory made holes in it, and the rocks sit in there like eggs in a carton and rattle when the engine hits a certain vibration frequency which is basically when it is at a stop light or idling. The repair shop wanted to charge to cut them off but I think I am going to drill bigger holes so the rocks fall out, as they are pretty tiny.

You have a loose belt on the A/C. On most new cars that is one big belt that drives everything on the car. If when you look at the belt on the grooved side, do you see cracks on the grooved part running across (from side to side) on the belt? if so, it is in bad need of a new belt. A new belt should stop the squealing noise. While you are replacing the belt also check the belt tensioner to ensure it is in good working order.
