Can anyone tell me the width of a new belt. I ask my dealer and his basic answer was to get a new one.

Can't tell you the width of a new belt but can tell you the minimum width of an old belt before you have to replace it. That would be 20.85 mm (0.82 inch).

I have measured two new belts for my '03 400, one was 24.8 mm the other just a bit over 25 mm. I have run them down to 21.5 mm or so with no obvious issues other than a slight increase in engine speed for a given vehicle speed--telling me it was time for a new one.

The shop manual refers to a "standard" width of 21.85 mm, which I have interpreted from my experience to be the "you really ought the replace this belt" point. The end-of-life limit is specified as 20.85 mm as Buffalo stated...

OK I thank everyone for your help. Just finished ordering a new belt and rollers. I guess I should write down the measurements for next time
