V Belt is thin and V in shape, and is normally used to power a single component in a system of pulleys. Serpentine Belt is wider, and is used to drive multiple components in automotive engine, it loops continuous over several pulleys. In addition, V Belts are normally found in older automotives.

How do I rethread the serpentine belt on a 2002 Malibu with a V-6?
It has 2 serpentine belts.
V Belt and Serpentine Belt.
a good diagram is on www.hondacr-v.com/2005/serpentine/belt/diagram/
If it is a serpentine belt the automatic tensioner will adjust the belt for you. If it is an older "V" type belt--there should be 1/2" "play" at the middle of the belt, between the pulleys.
there is no serpentine belt on an '86. there is a v-belt and a timing belt. the v-belt is tightened by moving the alternator. the timing belt is tightened by rotating the inner core of the tensioner. the inner core is eccentricly mounted, i.e. if you rotate it, the tensioner moves. there is a serpentine belt alond with two independent belts.
One serpentine, and one "v" belt.
You will need to loosen the tensioner pulley. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right and the serpentine belt will become loose. Remove the old serpentine belt and put the new serpentine belt on. Slide the tensioner pulley to the left and tighten it.
It could be but the accessory belt could also be a v-belt type belt.
if it is cracking exesively
Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right. The old serpentine belt will become loose and can be removed. Put the new serpentine belt on and reverse a process.
A rubber belt that goes around all pulleys & has idlers as tensioners. On cars there are either v belts (belts shaped like a "v" that are tightened by moving accessories) or serpentine, which is usually one ribbed belt with idlers.
The 2001 Honda Civic is not equipped with a serpentine belt, but has 2 v-belts. These are tensioned through use of a tensioner.
how to replace drive belt on a 2005 ford escape XLT 3.0 V-6
Look on the back side of the serpentine belt (the side of the belt with the ribs). If any of the ribs are cracked the belt should be replaced. Take a look at the physical condition. If it is cracked on the inside (groove or V side) it needs to be replaced.
A serpentine belt is one that drives multiple components with both sides of the belt. The ribs can be either poly groove or micro groove, depending on year, make, model, and engine.
i need a digram on how install a v belt on a 1997 e420 Mercedes
The "v" belt is for the air conditioning. The serpentine belt is for the power steering and alternator.
No, the serpentine belt is used to drive more than one thing and tension is automatically adjust by way of a spring loaded idler pulley. Normally it will drive the alternator, power steering pump, & A/C compressor. A drive belt normally drives only one thing and tension is manually adjusted. A serpentine belt is wider that a drive belt and is not a V-Belt like a drive belt.
It has one serpentine belt for the AC compressor and alternator, and a V-belt for the power steering. ~Pengauin
yes,a good parts man will give you a belt to bypass your ac.
There is no serpentine belt on the 2.7 it' s chain driven. Whoever says there is no serpentine belt on a 2007 Toyota tacoma and that it is chain driven is absolutely morbidly stupid. They must be thinking of the timing chain but every vehicle has either serpentine belt or v-belts to run the alternator or water pump or power steering pump. Don't answer the question if you don't know what the hell you are talking about. Idiota
