Default Serpentine belt factoid

If your Cav has an air conditioner you don't use you can use the shorter belt from the non-AC Cars. The benefits are twofold: the belt is easier to install, and because the AC compressor wheel isn't spinning, it won't disintegrate inside and require a nasty and time consuming repair job.

Just did this on my 02, after logging 145K on the original belt, which still looked kinda okay....
