in the recent spell of cold weather it appears my water pump had frozen and caused the drivebet to break.  i have been to get a new one and am pretty confident in fitting etc.

when attempting to fit the drivebelt it was way too big,
at first i assumed i was given the wrong one but now im not sure, heres why...

The cam belt drives 2 pulleys, 1 connects to the alternator and fan and the other to power steering pump,

the one that broke is the alternator/fan belt.

ive been looking on the net and everyone i find that specifies it fits my vitara says its just 1 belt for them all???

does anyone know where i can get this belt

the car is a vitara jx 1.6 8v 2000

anyone have any ideas??

its all down to the chassis number.

on the last of that shape, the 2 belts should be the same size but on the earlier ones, the pas belt is a 4pk738 i think
