    Hi. The transmission belt on my Metro began slipping off. When I looked at the belt, it was damaged, peeling away in about a 3 inch section. The belt is in good shape (not worn) except for the portion that is damaged.

    I can replace the belt without much of a problem, but my question is what would cause belt damage like that?

    could you have spilled some kind of solvent on that part of the belt or something like that?

    usually if you get belt wear on the back, the belt could be contacting a belt guide, the back side idler bearing could be failing, or debris could have gotten in contact with the belt.

    New belts are cheap. 1-323280 is the part number i think.
