You shouldn't have any problems as long as their aren't any loose peices to fall down into the cover, also be careful washing your car if u wash the engine, any liquid that gets on the belt could cause the belt to skip which would result in engine damage, I would suggest that you replace it in the future. Your local junkyard is a good start, probably $10-$20
