Drive belts

It is unnecessary to check the deflection of the drive belt periodically because your engine is equipped with an automatic belt tension adjuster. However, replacement of the belt should be done according to the maintenance schedule in the Warranty and Maintenance Booklet. Consult your SUBARU dealer for replacement.

If the belt is loose, cracked or worn, contact your SUBARU dealer.
