Has anyone had any issues with their belt? At 53k I had the belt tear up and snap. Replaced the belt and a loose pulley and now 3 weeks later im having same issue. Loud sqeaking started and I pulled over to check and the sides of the belt are chewed again. Sure its going to happen again..drove home doing like 30.

Haven't had this issue but its gotta be something else loose like a bad tensioner !! Causing a lil wiggle and putting tension on the belt! I’d ck all pulleys and tensioner after that i’m goin to. Good Mech.. or Ugh the Dealer !

The bolt on my harmonic balancer backed off. Weird.. this is the second time I've had an issue with the harmonic balancer
Correct torque? I know a WK1 is 150 ft lbs I believe. Gotta hold the motor from spinning.

Yep. Balancer backed out almost an inch. Obviously shredded belt. Bolt was finger loose. Turns out HB was broken and had to be replaced. That and a rear mail seal was leaking badly. There goes another $3700. 2012 with 120k mikes.
