Video Description

The video above shows how to check the belts on your 2009 Chevrolet HHR - 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 HHR 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 HHR!

The belts in your HHR 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 HHR is one of those Chevrolets that shrieks horrendously when it runs, you likely have a worn belt, bad tensioner or both.
