100K Water pump and drive belt

Picture of old parts at 100,000 miles. Glad I changed them out. Thanks to this Forum and members for their pictures, procedures and advice. Took three hours.

Making a decision without following it with an action is still a fantasy.

Did you use an OEM drivebelt? I had mine replaced at 9 years old when the voltage regulator in my alternator went bad and the mechanic replaced it with a Dayco belt which squealed like crazy for no reason a little over a year later.

Yes you are right. The aftermarket parts suck on these cars. If you are going to use other than anything from the dealership, stick to bando or mitsuboshi. They make the OE belts.

Over the 4-5 years I've owned my current yaris, I have replaced the drive belt 4 times (the 4th one last weekend). Each time because it starts squealing at startup, even after re-tightening. Each time with a different brand from the local shops. Cheap or expensive, it makes no difference. This last time I just took it to the shop and had them do it. At least now if it starts doing it again I can just take it back to them and say "fix your crap". Lets hope 4th time is the charm.
Now I drive a CARMINE RED METALLIC 09 Yaris 3-door!! I'm Back!!! WooHoo!! Mods done so far: Tinted windows, Viper 211HV Remote Keyless Entry, Atoto Android headunit, backup camera, steering wheel controls

Before it was totaled I drove a 2007 Black Sand Pearl 3 Door Lift-Back M/T with 49k miles. Stock Everything except for black tint, all red badges, red dash, and stealth garage door opener. Ultra-Gauge mounted on steering wheel. A1 Electric MES Central Locks and Avital 3100 Alarm system.

I was just watching a youtube video about a guy who claims that you can make your drive belts last hundreds of thousands of miles with a product designed to polish tires.

On another note, did you replace the water pump with an OEM Aisin one from Toyota, OP? There was another thread on here where everyone complained that the new OEM waterpump would start leaking every 30k miles.

very useful, this after having fabricated a belt tensioner from a post on how to solve this extremely annoying problem. It also explains why at times it does not squeal, probably just started the car a little slower...
