Bebot’s Got a New Belt

Bebot got a new serpentine belt just in time for a couple of out of town trips. The belt probably could have lasted a few thousand more miles, but Brian and I are uber cautious. Our motto has always been, better be safe than sorry. Okay, we have a few mottos. But that is one of them.

It probably would have cost us less to do it ourselves. Brian watched the guy do it and he said it was pretty simple. I guess we will know for the next one.

Anyway, I’m so glad that I listened to Gil. Having a second opinion helps sometimes. Even if just to make you feel better about spending the money on maintenance.

As these things go, preventative is always better because it’s always more expensive to fix something after it’s already broken. Specially since it usually causes a bunch of other problems also. Plus, no one wants to get stranded on the side of the rode. Aside from the inconvenience, you now have to add towing costs on top of everything else. A really expensive one at that, depending on where you are.

Note to mom: It may be time to replace your serpentine belt also. But this is probably something that dad and Brian can do together. The part is usually only $20-$40. Let us know when you want to do it.
