I was about to buy a replacement belt as mine hasn't been changed in the seven years I've had the car and starting to squeal.  II could just adjust but think it's a good idea to replace.  I'm a bit confused by the size as most places advertise 10 x 710.  Checking my current belt it's marked as Porsche 999.192.176.50 9.5X710 FA 3G GOODYEAR.  There is a thread on Pelican but not very clear, I'm guessing that the 9.5 has now been replaced maybe with the 10.  Can anyone confirm the 10 will fit with no problem on a 85 3.2?  Cheers.

I've never paid much attention and either just order from ECP or whatever my local car shop orders in for me.  Never had any issues over the past 16 years.

 

I've probably got a couple of this these as spares:

It's also the same as what Matt stocks:

The 0.5mm thickness difference won't cause you any problems.  Probably wear below that after a few 1000 miles.

Thanks Haith / Nige / Ivan.  Bit if a difference in opinion here from no problem to a PITA!  I was going to buy this but saw that the size differs from what I currently have although with the same Porsche part number https://type911shop.co.uk/epages/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766/Products/5009

Porsche will sell you the correct belt. Just ask your local OPC. About £12 from memory 

They will sell you the 10mm one

They stopped selling the 9.5mm one a few years ago

Does 0.5mm make much difference if the belt is tensioned with washers anyway? I use them as they say Porsche on them. Always a nice touch when opening the engine bay 🤪

Agree Haith, for the price I’ll stick with the Porsche part 👍
