hey all, i keep throwing power steering belts for some reason, no matter how tight it is done up , i keep throwing them off, i was wondering if it the harmonic balancer and if so how much roughly would it cost to replace

my only suggestion would be to put a belt back on, run the car and sit an look for any of the pulleys (p\s pump, air con, tension pulley etc etc) and just see if they are buckled....

Or if you have time and petrol, pull up a chair and a beer and wait to see how the belt comes off...just dont sit too close lol
