Buy spare parts for the belt drive online at a low price
The belt drive is a rubber belt with an insert of steel or fabric that transmits forces and torques between two shafts. The main task is to transmit the torque of the engine via the crankshaft to the engine control unit and various auxiliary units to drive them. The transmission works by re-tensioning the belt, whereby as little energy as possible should be lost in the process. Auxiliary units are e.g. the generator, water pump, alternator and cooling system. For higher rotation torques, several V-belts are switched on simultaneously to avoid slippage. Tensioning plays the biggest role in the whole system. At low tension there is a risk of spinning, at high tension there is a risk of overloading the belts and aggregates. It is impossible to imagine a modern vehicle without V-belts. Their performance depends on various influences like fuel consumption, increased temperature, high load, CO2 emission. Over time, the performance decreases due to increasing elongation of the rubber belt. Therefore we recommend continuous maintenance of the parts and in case of emergency replacement in a workshop. For this we recommend spare parts from our online shop. Find what you need at Q-Parts24!

Different belt types
The function of drive belts is almost the same, but a distinction is made between different types. Firstly, the best-known is the V-belt which runs on V-belt pulleys and has a textile cover. The narrow V-belt with better energy transmission. The shaped-toothed belt, which has a longer service life and higher power output due to reduced energy consumption. The open-flank V-belt also has a longer service life and a better frictional connection. One of the most modern belt types is the V-ribbed belt or also called flat-ribbed belt. It differs from its predecessors in width, flexibility and thinness. It has several longitudinal ribs, which make a lower energy loss possible and thus also drive more auxiliary units. In addition, smaller wrap radii and larger transmission ratios and thus protection against spinning are guaranteed.

Generally, we recommend that V-belts be replaced in a workshop, as this is a precise job with several points of contact. Above all, the ideal tension of the belt is of importance here, and special measuring instruments are available for this. As these are parts with high requirements, please consult our competent service team to find the best fitting part for you. Quality plays a major role here, because a failure of the V-belt can even lead to engine damage. In our online shop you can find complete sets of V-belts, V-ribbed belts and timing belts to equip your vehicle completely. Trust in high quality products from renowned brands such as Bosch, SKF, febi or Blueprint. Find the right part for you now and benefit from fast delivery within 2 days.
