99 GT 3.4

Ive tried 3 different belts and all start making noise within 6 months. I want to find a Gatorback belt but no autopart stores around me seem to carry it. Oreillys, AutoZone, Advanced, Carquest or Napa. Anyone know where to get it or have a part number? Thanks!

I have two of them used that I will sell you for $10 a piece.

Most autoparts stores won't carry them. Try ordering from summit racing.

That's weird Autozone don't have it. That's where I got mine from, but yeah Summitracing has them.

It sounds like a belt is a band-aid fix. Have you checked all the pullies and made sure none are out of alignment? Irregular belt movement could wear one side quicker than the other and cause a squeaking noise.

Every pulley is new except for the a/c compressor and there is nothing visibly or mechanically wrong with it. Everything is bolted on correctly, aligned and clean. The problem is cheap ass belts.

Autozone just recently stopped carrying gatorback belts. Try rockauto or summit as mentioned before. Iirc you may still be able to special order the belts through autozone but I am not 100% on that

Yea you can still order it, last I looked anyways. We offer dayco at Auto Zone now, and seems to be a equivelant if not better belt than gatorback. And the dayco comes with a 1 year warranty.

Autozone no longer stocks Gatorback. They are now stocking Gates belts.

The gatorback belts can be found on ebay or amazon for a better price.
