IMHOpinion:  The belt is to the alternator.  It is the first pulley in view
to the elements.
Mine slipped for years when wet and snow etc.  80 4K, 864KQ, Bad design.
Blocking it with something may not be a bad idea but I suspect the
Alternator uses "ram"
air to cool it as the 90 200 TQAvant has a duct to take "ram" air from the
and direct it to the back of the alternator.

86 4Q, 90 200 TQAvant, others BOSTON
