Cracks on the rib side of a belt are considered acceptable. If the belt has chunks missing from the ribs, it should be replaced.

Adjustment
Drive belt tension measurement and adjustment
Belt tension measurement
Measure the belt tension using a mechanical tension gauge or a sonic tension meter.

Tension
New Belt :
961.0 ~ 980.7 N (98.0 ~ 100.0 kgf, 216.1 ~ 220.5 lbf)
Used Belt :
637.4 ~ 735.5 N (65.0 ~ 75.0 kgf, 143.3 ~ 165.3 lbf)

   
If the engine has run for 5 minutes or more, the belt tension must be adjusted as a used belt.
When installing the V-ribbed belt, all grooves on the pulley should be covered with belt ribs.
A loose belt causes slip noise.
Too tight belt cause bearing of alternator and water pump to damage.

1.
While pressing the handle (A) of the gauge, insert the belt (B) between pulley and pulley (or idler) into the gap between spindle (C) and hook (D).

2.
After releasing the handle (A), read a value on the dial pointed by the indicator (B).

Using a sonic tension meter (U-505/507 type)
