V-belts are used in pulley systems where multiple belts drive the engine's peripheral components. Although typically found in older vehicles, some newer cars may use this system of belts as well.
As with serpentine betls, when a v-belt breaks your vehicle will lose the benefits of whatever component it is driving. This can quickly lead to your vehicle being disabled from a number of reasons. Often times you may not realize a belt has broken until the vehicle begins overheating, a voltage warning light comes on, or the steering is increasingly difficult.
Replacing v-belts is similar to serpentine belts, typically using a tensioner to remove and install them.
