Over the last few years, more and more vehicle manufacturers have begun using Elast Belts in their accessory drive systems.
Made from materials that enable them to keep constant tension on a drive system without the need for a tensioner, ContiTech Elast Belts reduce the weight of the vehicle. Decrease the amount of space needed for the drive system. And reduce costs for the manufacturer during assembly and for the vehicle owner when it’s time to replace the belt.
Since there is no tensioner in an Elast Belt drive, the method for replacing the belt is different from a traditional multi-rib belt. With the ContiTech UniTool you can easily remove or install any Elast Belt, no matter the vehicle make or model.
