SOURCE: how do you loosen the serpentine belt

That wasn't right though. There is a 1/2 slot for a 1/2 inch breaker bar and when two holes are lined up you stick a drill bit or similar peice through to lock it in place till you get the belt routed then pull back alittle bit on the breaker bar to remove tension from the drill bit . Remove the drill bit and release tension on breaker bar and remove it to put tension on the belt.Then check alignment , positioning, routing of the belt visually.

SOURCE: Serpentine belt too tight to install

I had the same problem when trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2001 Trooper. The Maintenance book was very vague and I couldn't tell exactly how the tension was taken off the belt, but it did clearly identify the tensioner pulley. I first removed the pulley and looked for some kind of slot that would give me the adjustment I needed, but no slotted adjustment is present on the 01 Trooper. I had to do some research so I pulled of the tensioner assembly and found that there is a spring coil which keeps tension on the belt constant, and eliminates any belt alignment problems.

The Litens style tensioner uses a spring to apply pressure towards the serpentine belt. The way to relax the spring is to use your 14mm socket and ratchet and force the pulley down by driving the pulley nut in the clockwise direction. This forces the spring to compress and the pulley to drop giving the needed clearance to get your new belt in place.

SOURCE: How to replace serpentine belts 99' Hyundai Elantra.

you might need to get a prybar or something such long, and try to pry it off the belt, it should go easy right away. It is a spring-inside assembly, and won't brake. There also could be a 3/4 hole in it, look from a side. It's for middle size ratched, it can be used to loosen the tensioner from serp. belt.

SOURCE: Cannot find the tensioner pulley to put my alternator back on

The smooth rounded tensioner pulley has a 1/2 inch drive recessed ratchet drive fitting in the outer side of it. Reach down and feel it with your fingers and insert the ratchet drive into it. Look around the underside of the hood and engine bay for a small diagram showing the belt, pulleys and tensioner.

This pulley is either a slider or a spring loaded pulley. If it is a slider, there will be one or two bolts with "slide" areas that the bolt can move through, and possibly a third bolt that controls the tension. If it is a spring loader, there will be a pulley that looks like it is on a lever. There will be a "bolt" type head, a hole for a ratchet, or a square area on the end of the lever to twist it away from the belt. If it is one of these, the belt tensioner will move relatively easy.

How is the best way to replace a serpentine belt on a 2005 kia sorento


First remove the engine plastic cover by removing the bolts that hold in. Then loosen the nuts at the front of the AC Belt and Power Steering Belt. Now use a Socket set and loosen these two belts by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise.

You have to remove the first two belts (AC & Power Steering) before reaching the Serpentine Belt.

Now loosen the nut on the front of the lowest pulley before loosening the serpentine belt.

To loosen the serpentine belt, you could either remove the metal skid plate at the bottom of the engine by turning the tension adjustment bolt, Anti-Clockwise or reach down from the top and loosen it with the socket set ( quick & easiest)

How do I Change the alternator belt on my mazda?


IF IT IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE OTHER BELTS, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS UNBOLT THE TOP OF THE ALTERNATOR, AND PUSH IT IN TO LOOSEN THE BELT FOR REMOVAL! IF IT IS IN BACK OF THE BELTS (ESPECIALLY A SERPENTINE BELT) YOU'LL HAVE TO REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT FIRST! THERE WILL BE A TENSION PULLEY HOLDING THE BELT TIGHT! YOU'LL NEED TO USE A WRENCH TO PULL THE TENSION PULLEY TOWARD YOU TO LOOSEN BELT! WATCH HOW YOU REMOVE IT, BCUS YOU'LL NEED TO PUT IT BACK ON THE SAME WAY! THEN REMOVE, AND REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR BELT AS BEFORE, THEN REPLACE THE SERPENTINE BELT!

I have a audi i cant put the surpentine belt back in


Click on the following Direct Link. I know you said Serpentine (correct spelling) Belt and this Link has Timing Belt; however this does have the Serpentine Belt Diagram and also some key instructions to putting it back-on. After going to the Link, scroll down the page (to about half-way down the page) to Diagrams: G00039904, then G50H16367, then G50J16369.
In Diagram G00039904: it has the "Hinged Mounting Bracket" which has the Pulley holding tension on the belt keeping it tight. This must be loosened (NOT REMOVED) in order to get a serpentine belt back on. Then re-tightened in order to have the correct amount of tension.
In Diagram G50J16369: this Hinged Mounting Bracket has Mounting Bolts which again must be loosened (NOT REMOVED) in order for the hinge mounting bracket to move - loosening the Pulley = loosening the Serpentine Belt.
There are a couple of additonal Diagrams regarding the Electric Fan Mounting Bolts etc., that are useful for your reinstallation.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!
