WD40 on a belt :shock: :shock: :shock:

hope your brakes never squeak :P

Might just need to be tensioned up but if the belts are worn then replace them

wd 40 does the job. the belt absorbs the fluid. the wd40 expells water and moisture thus the belt will stop slippin. silicone spray does the same

spraying WD-40 on the drive belts of your automobile.

Although you should spray a suitable substance such as "belt dressing" to them, WD-40 is not the substance you want to use. WD-40 is known to deteriorate rubber and if applied too heavily will actually eat a spot in them, causing them to either stick on a pulley or snap under pressure. Belt dressing can be found in most auto shops
