Subject: New Serpentine Belt Goes Wild

No, not a video of my Serpentine belt in Cancun...my brand new belt, one
band/tooth of it just desintegrated.  I found most if it wrapped up on
the main cooling fan!  Anyway, the majority of the belt is still in tact
but obviously I should not drive on that belt to much (or maybe I should
not drive at all, any suggestions?) but at the moment it is my only
means of transportation.  Now, I was able to get the broken pieces
unwound from the fan (courtesy of Ginsu, sorry, did not have other tools
and I was very careful)...the question is, what could have caused it?
Was it a faulty belt?  Anyway, thoughts and suggestions appreciated.  I
will end up getting another belt this week.

Take care,
Zay Campozano
