Re: just checking

Yes, you can.

Measure the belt size using a piece of string or soft tape measure.

Re: just checking

To add a little bit to Wing's post, you have a couple of inches to play with, as the alternator has the tensioner. What's more, since it's a simple V-belt, you're going to be spoiled for choice for a non-stock replacement.

Stuff to measure:
- required belt length with the alternator tensioner at full extension,
- required belt length with the alternator tensioner at minimum extension
- Belt depth
- Belt minimum width (bottom of the V)
- Belt maximum width (top of the V_

The first 2x measurements will give you a range of belt lengths that'll work. If you can find multiple sizes within the range, opt for the smaller one. belts will stretch over time, and you don't want to run out of tensioner travel.


The last 3 points should help ensure that you get the correct belt cross sectional profile. These can vary by country of origin, and purchase location (within the world). There is going to be <I>SOME</I> variance allowed, but getting a belt that's the way wrong profile will mean slipping / squealling / throwing / of belts and your accessory drives generally pitching a fit. if you can't match exact, look at the closest size larger, and use your best judgement.
