  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I just replaced the belt tensioner two days ago after a mechanic said it needed to be replaced after a vehicle inspection. The old tensioner was bouncing a lot and the thin, curved metal on the inside was also broken on it (see photo: Thin, Curved Metal Part That Broke Off Old Tensioner.JPG)...

    Here's the video: IMG_7152.MOV One thing that's important is that I took the thin metal pin out of the inside of the tensioner spring. It was loose and rattling. The tensioner was vibrating/moving the exact same way before I took it out though. There's also a clicking sound you can hear in the...

    I have 2011 Cruze LT 1.4L TURBO. Found my belt was shredding. I replaced today and when I fired it up, the cooling fan sounded like it wanted to take off and about 45 seconds later, the brand new belt started to shred. What is doing this??? Thank you in advance.

    Went out today and noticed the battery light on for the first time. Didn't think too much of it and within a mile got engine overheating notice and constant beep. Of course was on a 4 lane road and backed up red light so it was about 3-4 minutes before I could pull off the road, kept it in...

    Hi, My 2014 cruze has 92,000 miles with a squeaking serpentine pulley, the belt was replaced about 3 months ago, not the pulley. The question I have is this something that needs to be replaced as soon as possible? The squeak sounds like a hamster on the little circle wheel. I had dodge vehicles...

    Hey gang. One of my 2016 Cruze Limited hit 60K miles Friday. Planning to change serpentine belt, maybe next weekend. Have a couple of questions dealing with the motor mount that must be removed to change belt. A. The service manual shows the engine being hoisted by only one point to remove...

    What's up with tith this? Inspect engine accessory drive belts from 60-100,000mi & replacing @ 100,000mi maximum for fraying, excessive cracks or obvious damage (or every 10 years, whichever occurs first). Really? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi all, I'm trying to get a new serpentine belt for my 2011 Cruze LTZ 1.4, but i'm confused if it should be 5060555 or 4060555. I wasn't able to see this information on the user manual or the belt itself. Any help? Thanks!

    I bought new Chevy Cruze at the end of 2011 and only now got to over 20000 miles. Few days ago my serpentine belt snapped. Luckily guys from repair shop said that all I need is new serpentine belt. However, during replacement they pointed out that my pulley is way wider than belt. They asked if...

    My cruze is about 3 years old and at about 103,000KM and I am getting squealing when I start the car up in the morning that eventually goes away, so logically I need a new serpentine belt. I picked up a new one yesterday and while I haven't had a look at the routing under my hood yet I am...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2012 1LT auto with the 1.4 Turbo, and I'm the type who usually carries a few common spare parts around for my car. In my old car ('96 Blazer with the never die, but never idle smoothly Vortec 4300) I always carried a spare serpentine belt since I've had them break on me before, and...
  16. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    Here is a video I made showing how to replace the belt on a 2013 Cruze. Please note I made one mistake in the video. Remove the bracket on the engine before removing the belt. It will make things 500X easier. This video would be useful if you have to replace a alternator / belt...

    I just purchased a 2013 Cruze LTZ RS a few weeks ago. I was wondering, how do you replace a serpentine belt on a 1.4l cruze? After looking over the engine I believe the passenger side motor mount needs to be disconnected and the engine needs to be supported by the 3 hooks on the engine, the...
