Inspection Tool for Serpentine Belts
Today’s serpentine belts wear out gradually, much like a tyre, and don’t always show signs of visual wear. A serpentine belt can appear to be in good condition when it’s actually near failure. Belts manufactured before the year 2000 show obvious failure signs such as cracks. The New Gates® Belt Wear Gauge provides a simple and reliable way to determine if a serpentine belt has lost enough material to negatively affect performance and warrant replacement.
The Gates® Belt Wear Gauge was designed with input from professional automotive technicians. It is easy to use and gives instant pass / fail results so you can replace belts at the appropriate time. You can use it on or off the vehicle, one-handed, and even in places where you can’t see.
