Default Another Belt question.. 01 sc2

I have the dreaded clacking coming from the tensioner area.. aftermarket tensioner just replaced thinking that was the noise. I read about the belt size... but didnt find out who has the correct belt. I need one asap. Thanks!

We'd need to know the details of your car. Year, model and what options (A/C, power steering, etc). Plus or minus accessories will affect the belt length. Also what part manufacture did you replace it with.

Default Re: Another Belt question.. 01 sc2

All belts are 5 rib.

WITHOUT A/C WITHOUT PS
- 55.0 inches

WITH A/C WITHOUT P/S
- 63.5 inches

WITHOUT A/C WITH P/S
- 64.5 inches

WITH A/C WITH P/S
- 75.5 inches

The Autozone part numbers are just the length and then K5 for 5 rib....so the factory belt for an Sx2 is goign to be 755K5.

Removing the P/S requires a ribbed idler pulley.

Crap aftermarket tensioner reduces the required length by at least 0.5" unless you swap the OEM pulley onto it.

755 sounds like an Sx1 belt - positive my Sx2 belts were 780 for OEM tensioner (w AC and PS)

Just tried the 755k5. Not a chance that thing will ever fit. I put the 780 back on.

The 778 is the shortest that fits. It is best to first figure out which mechanical stop the tensioner arm is hitting, usually it is the one related to long belt.
