The fan belt, also known as the drive belt, is a component in the engine of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle that is used to drive the engine’s accessories such as the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, and water pump. It is typically made of rubber or a synthetic composite material and is located at the front of the engine.

The fan belt’s job is to transfer power from the engine’s crankshaft to the accessories, which helps to keep the engine running smoothly. The fan belt is driven by the crankshaft pulley and it runs over several other pulleys that are connected to the engine’s accessories. The tension of the fan belt is adjustable and it’s important to maintain the right tension to ensure that the belt doesn’t slip or break.

In Mercedes-Benz engines, the fan belt is typically designed to be durable and long-lasting, able to withstand the high temperatures and pressures of the engine operation. They are also designed to be precision-ground to ensure accurate alignment of the pulleys and proper tension of the belt. The fan belt should be inspected regularly and replaced if it shows signs of wear or damage to ensure proper engine function and prevent potential engine damage.
