Serpentine Belt

I haven't priced one out from ford yet, NAPA has them for $32. Anyone run one from NAPA or Autozone, or do you guys treat this as a dealer only part?

Those are probably the best belts. Goodyear makes them, don't they?

I bought mine from FORD, $50. Motorcraft stuff will easily go 150k miles, my original still looked good, but I replaced it for the peace of mind. $50 is cheap insurance.

If you are in there replacing belts I would check the idler pully that is close to the tensioner. I had mine smoke the bearing with no warning. Destroyed the belt and had to get a new bearing pressed in the pully. The sh*ty part is I was hundreds of miles from home when it happened and had to pay to have the work done.

Mine was $44.43 from Tousley Ford. OEM. When you do change it spin things by hand. You'll get a rough idea of when an idler or alternator bearings are going south.
