The Importance of Timely Replacement of Belts and Hoses

Belts and hose are important parts of your vehicle that are in almost constant use. They are also components that are subject to replacement from wear and tear, especially as your vehicle gets older and puts on more miles. Timely replacement of belts and hoses will ensure that your vehicle does not break down and leave you stranded in Urbandale.

Belts and pulleys are responsible for powering components such as the water pump, air injection pump, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor and much more. The timing belt is responsible for the crankshaft. Various hoses deliver coolant, fuel and brake fluid. When any of these components start to crack, you can experience engine failure.

Following the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule will help prevent breakdowns and ensure timely replacement of these parts. When you bring your vehicle into our service center here at BMW of Des Moines for servicing, we'll inspect these parts and recommend servicing as needed.
