Hope everyone is doing good.
I have a problem where I need guidance.
I have Toyota Passo 2011 Model (Import of 2014). During the winters, I encountered a problem, a cat went inside the engine area when I parked my car outside my friend's place. While driving back, since I did not know the cat was still sitting there, I started the engine. After driving a few meters, the cat probably hit the Belt which connects Generator, water body. Long story cut short, the belt got broken off, and I did not realize until I reached home (I was more concerned about the cat).
Now I went to local mechanic, a few of them actually, and all of them asked to tell the number of belt. Since I did not have it, nor did I know the number, so I asked them to see the engine and try to find out . Now one guy had put 6Ply 1200 belt there, but the problem is that it got loose after a while and now it is making sounds. I went back to him and he said to try 6Ply 1190. But my concern is, is it OK to experiment like this? I have not been able to find out the correct number.
Anyone having the same model can please help me out with correct belt number mentioned on the belt, its towards left side of the engine. Also is there any particular place from where I can buy/order the original belt.
Is it harmful for the parts with the belt I am using or is it just the sounds and nothing else?
