Spray-on Belt Dressing for Squealing Belts

By

Quick and easy.

Belt dressing can be a temporary fix for squealing belts.

That hideous whinny you hear under the hood isn't all those horses getting hungry, it's a slipping belt. Not only are your ears trying to crawl into your head, the ears of everybody within a mile of you are doing the same. It's time to do something for your country by sparing us the torture.

You need new belts, but you won't be able to tighten things up or replace them for a few weeks. Instead of suffering, you can try a can of aerosol belt dressing. This is a temporary fix, but it only takes a second and is easy to use.
