Serpentine Belt Replacement

(2001 Volkswagen EuroVan)
in Keyport, NJ on September 02, 2010
The van has 38,000 miles on it. Took it in for an oil change. Shop mechanic told me that the belt had fine cracks in it. Quoted around 240 to replace. I think the belt is around 60. Can I do it myself?

My advice is to bite the bullet and have a shop install it. You might also want him to put in a new water pump if it needs it. Also have him inspect the belt tensioner. Better to have this done now than to have your unit "break down" somewhere out away from any mechanics.
