The accessory belt drive system (ABDS) powers more accessories than ever before, is increasingly sophisticated and plays a vital role in engine efficiency, reliability and driver comfort. Many engine and safety critical systems rely on the ABDS for power and the consequences of ABDS failure could, in the worst case scenario, be catastrophic. An unexpected system failure can have serious consequences – such as overheating of the engine or the sudden loss of power steering at a crucial time. As an Original Equipment (OE) supplier, Gates recommends that garages replace all wear parts at the same time with high-quality components from a trusted brand. Our expertise in accessory belt drive design ensures the reliability of all the parts included in our kits. The best way to guarantee a reliable accessory belt drive system is to replace multi-ribbed belts and all the related belt drive components at the same time. That is exactly why Gates offers you its unique Micro-V® Kit: each kit is specifically composed for its application(s) and includes one or more multi-ribbed belts together with the matching metal parts.
