Video Description

The video above shows how to check the belts on your 2005 Hyundai Elantra - if it gives more than a half inch when pressed, is cracked, frayed or appears shiny, you should change it (or have it changed) immediately. Worn belts in a Elantra are one of those things that can cause a lot of problems if ignored, while typically being fairly cheap and easy to replace. Check out our parts page for coupons on new belts for your Elantra!

The belts in your Elantra connect your engine to many of the components you use every day such as your air conditioner, battery (via the alternator), power steering and cooling system. As such, you may experience a dead battery, difficulty steering, overheating, etc. that might be due to a worn belt, not a faulty component! If your Elantra is one of those Hyundais that shrieks horrendously when it runs, you likely have a worn belt, bad tensioner or both.
