Damnnit already handed my car to them, well they told me that if its something small they'll do it for no charge. Herb chamber lexus is norwood has great customer service. Hopefully i just wont have to pay for it.

Alright so I got a call from the dealer saying that after they let it sit for a couple of hours, they noticed the noise and said that they would "start at the drive belt" just to begin, which was going to run my $179.99 plus tax. That wasn't reassuring enough for me since the driver belt was only a guess at the problem. Luckily, they said that they weren't going to charge me for the diagnosis and going to have someone pick me up to get the vehicle. All in all, i'm actually satisfied with the dealership. Now can someone possibly teach me how to put the driver belt in? I'm about to order the part. Thanks!

Ok so the noise has gotten worst and its a really high screech now. So i'm going to buy a drive belt and have a mechanic change it. I would order from sewell but the sounds so bad that i'm just going to pick it up at advanced auto parts today after work. This is the only one they have (http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...RPBELTAMS_____) , i was wondering if people can give me their opinion on it, should i just get this today or order from sewell and wait? Also how much should i be paying a mechanic to replace a drive belt? I've heard that it's a small and quick job. With that said does anyone know any fair mechanics in boston?
