Last summer, the belt blew on my V2-Si 01 GT. My question is what exactly would cause the belt to fail downshifting into 3rd doing 70mph and what would cause this nipple to become weakened and break off(obviously the belt, but more specifically)?
Also, the back side of he idler that mounts on this nipple was damaged and sort of melted. I'm just looking for something to check or something I may have missed in order to help keep this from happening again.
