Our expert insights into alternator belt replacement in London

Our expert insights into alternator belt replacement in London

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.

    First time I used them - MOT. Collection was on time, the car was taken to a reputable local garage, and passed the test without any extra work. They even did a basic valeting - all for £19. Impressive. Only little problem was that delivery back to me was 2 hours late and I wasn't told. I'd take hal...

    Yes used the site for first time to get car service and mot done , all was good. Nice informative service and you can also track the driver picking up your vehicle. Great Service. It would be good if car wash and valeting was included.
