JCW belt #...Gates? Goodyear?

I would like to change the belt on my 03' JCW MCS this weekend. I won't be able to do it if I have to order a belt online...it will take too long to get it.

I was hoping to find one at a local autoparts store.....but when I tell them I have a MCS with the JCW package, they have no idea what I'm talking about.

Does anyone have a Gates, or Goodyear belt number for the proper belt for my JCW MCS? What brand is the best?

From what I have found on here....NAPA#060539 is what I want, but it looks like it's longer than the stock JCW which is 1374mm long.


Thanks!!

JCW is 1374 (6PK 1374) which would be equivalent to 060541.
Stock is 1388 (6PK 1388) which would be equivalent to 060547.

From the gates website it looks like K060539 is as close to 060541 as is available and should be slightly smaller.

Note: I read on the gates site that they warn against swapping metric to US belts because of many slight differences.

.

So does that mean I'm stuck going with the factory mini JCW belt, or are there other options from companies like Gates, Napa, or Goodyear? Lots of varying info on belt sizes from what I've been seeing....almost as much as opinion on if the JCW is 11%, 12%, or 14%. Ha!

I have read several posts that say a 060539 is the same as a JCW belt. And now it sounds like the 060541 is what i need?

I use the Continental 6PK 1374 belt on my car.
If you can wait to change the belt, you can find the OEM belt cheap such as $17 + $5.50 shipping:

Or at Way Motor Works:
http://www.waymotorworks.com/jcw-supercharger-belt.html

If you cannot wait, go with the NAPA/Gates 060539. It should be sligthly shorter than the OEM JCW belt. It is what would be used for a 15% pulley. I do not believe there is a 060541 belt size but that is what would be equivalent to the 1374.

I went to Advanced auto and they sold me a Gates K060538 belt. I have an 09 model, is there a difference in Gen 1 and Gen 2?
