    This is good info to know in case your A/C compressor locks up and breaks your belt. Short belting it will buy you time until you get a new compressor.

    Now just have to find out if you guys in the States can get a part number for the short belt.

    Update... hmm I struck out looking online for a non-AC belt on CANADIAN parts sites. Most of them seem to use US databases.

    NAPA Canada only shows one belt available. I assume for the AC cars. 3 other Canadian online sites show only one belt available. ONE of those sites indicated it was the belt for AC cars.

    Maybe dspace9 can have a look if the size printing is still visible on his shorter belt?

    If somebody PM's me with a VIN, I could look up the Mitsu part number.

    1340A128 is the part number for this (non-AC) car I found on the kijiji's VIN: ML32A3HJ8FH057970 https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...age-es/m733992 https://www.riversidemelfort.ca/used...f9a2ba8875.htm

    Might be a bit of a nightmare to find one other than from Mitsubishi? If you had the dimensions a decent parts person could probably get you a part number to try.

    I should have saved it from last night's searching, but it looks like the AC belt is used on multiple vehicles from multpile manufacturers. I'm sure I even saw a Mercury listed.
    The non-AC belt is probably similar.

    One of the sites also listed all the specs/dimensions for the AC belt.

    Funny - when I only search on "1340A128 belt", I get a few Russian parts sites. I didn't think Russia even got the Mirage.

    I did find this handy illustration as confirmation though:

    The part number shown in that image for the AC belt (1340A146) matches what members here have used to replace the AC belt:

    I wonder how many markets/countries have a base level Mirage without A/C, because the States is not one of them?

    Can't offer auto climate controls standard for all models (2014, 2015, 2020, 2021) without having A/C.

    Wow. That's pretty extreme.

    During the hottest months of the year, temperatures regularly top 40 C (105 F). Even during the cooler “winter” season you can expect daily highs to be around 30 C (86 F).
