The Chrysler Sebring drive belt is responsible for operating the air conditioner, alternator, water pump and power steering pump by taking power from the crankshaft pulley and transferring it to the pulleys on the engine accessories. Over time, the drive belt stretches out and the tensioner pulley no longer has the capability of providing enough tension on the belt to keep it from slipping. When this happens, you must replace the drive belt on your Chrysler Sebring.
