Does your model have the automatic tensioners? I had to change one of mine as well as the belts after 60k miles. By the way belt lube works great. It seems to reduce the cracking over time and stops the noise on relatively new belts running on worn out pulleys. Jim

: Hey All,

: I have been noticing that my belts are getting louder and louder as time goes on. They have about 25K on them or so and are begining to be audible in the car. It is not a squealing, just a "shhh shhh shhh shhh" sound over and over. Can I just tighten them up a bit or do I need to replace?? Add some belt lube or something?? Thanks in advance.

: Best,
