Serpentine Belt Change?

Can't find in the maintenance schedule when to change the serpentine belt...

Almost 40K on the Cali now. Don't want to have it pop on the freeway.

Anyone lose one/change one yet?

i believe that the owners manual says somewhere around 100k miles iirc

Im probably going to have the dealer change mine when the time comes, depending on how much they will charge.. I dont feel like dealing with it on this car because of how much room there isnt..

I'd just look at the belt and see what kind of condition it's in. Cracks in the rubber are a good indication that it's getting to a point to change it.
