    Corsa Auxillary Belt 6th Aug 18 at 11:48 AM
    I have a 2011 Corsa. It has done 34k miles. I do approx 5-6k a year.

    It is having a full service today. They also said that as it is 7ears old the car needs its auxillary belt replacing.67.
    Is this so, given the mileage done? I appreciate it is rubber and this wears?

    Thanks

    I cannot see the Corsa service schedule or the state of your aux belt.

    Which garage is doing the service - please dont say Kwikfault or Halfrauds !

    If it were me I would opt out and take a look myself - if it looks a little worn or perished then I would do it my self - cost of the belt is about 15.

    Im pretty sure they are supposed to be replaced every 5 years or x amount of miles.

    However take a look at it if looks fine dont bother

    Yes its well overdue and pretty cheap. It can cause big trouble if it breaks and wraps itself around the pulley and wears through the chain/belt cover depending on your year of Corsa.
