For Technicians
June 19: Belt Slip, the Gift that Keeps on Giving!
Presenter: Bobby Bassett, Gates Corporation, North America National Training Manager

During the session, you will explore the percentage of high rates of warranties for components in the Accessory Belt Drive System (ABDS) and why they just keep coming back. Bobby will communicate system insight, examine root cause failures and provide best practices when working on this system. After this session, you will be able to explain why up to 40% of batteries, 70% of alternators and 99.2% of belts returned to the factory as warranties, performed as intended. You will also learn why belt noise is symptomatic of a system failure, not a belt issue; identify belts for root cause failure plus recommend corrective action of repair and much more.
