Our expert insights into Austin alternator belt replacement

Our expert insights into Austin alternator belt replacement

What does an alternator belt do?

The alternator belt’s job is to transfer power from the engine crankshaft to various other components; these include the alternator (of course), the air conditioning and the power steering.

What are the symptoms of a malfunctioning alternator belt?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need an alternator belt replacement:

  • A squeaking sound from under the bonnet when you start your engine, or a high-pitched squeak while the engine is running.
  • If your car stalls regularly, or the engine refuses to turn over, it could be down to a slipping or broken alternator belt.
  • If you feel your car’s steering is heavier than normal, this could be due to a lack of power transferred to the power-steering system, and could also be down to the improper performance of your alternator belt.

What happens during an alternator belt replacement?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Visually inspect the alternator belt for signs of wear, tears and cracks.
  • Check the alternator belt's pulleys and tensioner.
  • Replace the belt, if necessary.
  • Check related parts and advise if any other repairs are needed.

    Fantastic service!! Was sceptical at handing my keys over but Carl was very professional and kept me updated all day. I dislike going to a garage as I feel they take advantage because I am a young female. £19 for an MOT and I didn’t have to do anything. Definitely using this service every time!

    I am always dubious of a great deal but this is a great deal. Used them for MOT. Driver collected my car 30 mins before scheduled and had it back in good time. No hidden costs and extra charges. A total win from service and price. Will use them again for sure.
