How long it takes to replace a drive belt depends on your skill, but the average time is about one hour. A very skilled technician could perform a drive belt replacement in less than 30 minutes.
Either way, this service is not a half-day or full-day task. If you can carve out a little time after work or on a weekend, you can get this replacement done in the blink of an eye! You can always hire a mobile mechanic if you’re seriously crunched for time. Make sure you ask about this specific service, as not all mobile mechanics are capable of belt replacements.
