Some questions related to the video, to expand on what has already been offered:
What's the issue with the belt in the video? Is it loose because the belt has stretched beyond the tensioner's ability to compensate, or is it because the tensioner isn't functioning properly to maintain the tension? (Either, of course, is a reason to do the timing belt service.)
Is that much stretch seen often with belts after 105k miles of use?
Are the wires in fact stitching of two joined ends of the belt?
If so, is this common construction on these belts?
And, in your experience, do the belts tend to break more often at this point?
