    I've searched just about everywhere and can't seem to find a specific serpentine diagram for my 2015 GMC Yukon. I've viewed the diagram for the 5.3L V8 trucks but that's not the correct diagram for my vehicle. Please help. Thank yoh

    2003 Kia. Replaced bad alternator. Belt broke after a few minutes. Now cannot find a felt that fits correctly. Have been to numerous parts stores and paid an outrageous amount for one from KIA dealer and it still does not work.
