    Anyone else having belt issues with their 5.5L BiTurbo?

    I'm about to drop off my S63 for a third time now and have a new belt put on the engine. This will be the third time in 9K miles they've fixed this. First time they replaced a pulley saying it had a broken rib on it. Second time they opened up a case with AMG on it. Now again, belt is shredded and squealing. This is starting to get annoying. Am I the only one with this issue?
    2012 Mercedes S63.... lowered, 22" Vossen CV3's, tune and times coming soon.

    2007 Jeep GC SRT8 Turbo.... too much to list.

    Your the first person I'm hearing of having this issue and to a severe degree.

    Let's see if Renntech can shed any light @m54b25

    MB told the dealer to replace the alternator. Apparently, there's a special one way pulley on it and they think that maybe the issue.

    On a side note, they gave me a 2014 CLS550 to drive around. What a freakin' great car!! Thing is just as fast as my S63. That's the car I really wanted but sadly it only seat 4 and I've got a wife and 3 kids. Click here to enlarge

    Well the CLS is a bit lighter but the M278 is nowhere near as strong as the M157.

    Not that I've heard any belt issues on the M278/M157. The best suggestion it's try the MB authorized dealer or 3rd party MB shops. Get a few master tech's to inspect issue, since not all tech's have same level of understanding. The forum it's not a good place to get an straight answer, since you will get many opinions of people without even looking at the vehicle IMO.

    Example: Engine belt could be getting chewed up by squirrels.. kind of answers. j/k
