Default Drive Belt Change

Hey guys, every morning my belt slips. I was going to replace it, something I have never done before as most of my wrenching experience is on old motorcycles, but I think I get the principal.

However, the belt looks good.

Any tips?

Matthew

you can clean all the pulleys off and pop on a Goodyear Gatorback........if that does not work try changing out the tensioner

On a 98 I would definately replace the tensioner and belt.
