Product Description

Description

When Volvo was developing their "short six" 3.2i and 3.0 T6 engines for transverse installation in engine bays, the accessory belt drive was relocated from the front (left) end of the engine to the rear (right) end, above the transmission. Putting belt-driven accessories like the water pump and A/C compressor in this free space above the transmission makes the six-cylinder SI6 even more compact than the old five-cylinder.

Both the primary accessories and the alternator are driven by this "R.E.A.D." (Rear Engine Accessory Drive) via one-way, freewheeling clutches in the pulleys, allowing the belts and accessories to gradually spin down when RPMs drop off. The extra second or two the accessories spend coasting down allows them to extract a little more energy from their own inertia, saving a bit of fuel while also subjecting the belts to gentler shock loads.

If you're above 100k miles and want to do scheduled service on all of these wear items, if you're hearing squeaks or chirps or rattles from the accessory belt area, or if you just want some peace of mind, this Accessory Drive Kit Builder will let you replace as much or as little of the engine-driven accessories as you wish.

We recommend the belt, tensioners, and idlers at a minimum, but if you've got continued grinding or chirping noises you can't identify (or if your car's at very high mileage), we suggest doing the decoupler and water pump "while you're in there."
