Balance Shaft Belt
The balance shaft belt moves the balance shaft, which minimises vibration in the motor. It is most often found in four-cylinder engines and attaches to the crank shaft and the balance shaft. The balance shaft belt can wear out and need replacement, like any kind of engine belt.
The suspension of your car helps to keep your journeys comfortable, while still providing maximum traction between the road and your tyres. Suspension allows your wheels to hold the road while providing a smoother ride for the body and frame.
Cam Belt (or Timing Belt)
The cam belt in your car drives the camshaft. Cam belts eventually wear out and need to be replaced. If the cam belt breaks it can cause catastrophic damage to your engine.
