I CHANGED THE SERPENTINE BELT ON MY '93 BROUGHAM SATURDAY. THE STEERING IS MUCH TIGHTER.
IN THE PAST, SOME OF THE BOYS IN HERE HAVE MENTIONED THE STEERING HITCH WHEN MAKING A RIGHT TURN. MINE DID IT AND NOW IT DOES NOT. :drinker

THE SERPENTINE BELT HAD SMALL CRACKS IN IT, AND COULD HAVE BEEN GOOD FOR AWHILE, BUT I DECIDED TO CHANGE IT ANYWAY.

THEY STRETCH AFTER ABOUT 25-30 K MILES. :crying:

I'd change mine, but I dont' have the time or the money. Nor do I know how old my belt is.

well belts range between 10-30 bucks and on the fleetwood it s SUPER EASY with soooo much space to work with its takes about 3 minutes from start to finish its easier if u have help though an extra set of hands to put the belt on

Yes but a fleetwood is nice and close to the ground.

Who cares how close to the ground it is. Just climb up under the hood and change it :bonkers:

Its a pain in the ass to do anything in that engine bay. I'm right at that height, where i need about 4 more inches of height to reach most stuff. Sad, I know. :(
