The V-Belt functions similar to other types of belts in the sense that it connects two moving parts to transfer the power from one to the other. Like in the case of a car it can connect the engine to the condenser of the air-conditioning system. However, regular belts are prone to slippage and can wear out if excessive pressure is exerted. So, the Vee Belts as they are commonly called prevents the slippage by adding grips under the belt. So, the belt will wedge in the grooves ensuring good power transfer and reliability. That said these belts require much larger pulleys to accommodate their thick cross section.
Replacing the V-Belt can prove to be a challenge in some types of vehicles, especially smaller vehicles with limited space. They may also require mounting using specialized equipment. Additionally, these belts need to be tightened perfectly so that they do not wear out prematurely. That said it's best to hire a professional mechanic who will replace the belt for you. If you decide to do it yourself make sure that you have the right tools and safety equipment at your disposal.
