How do I replace a broken fan belt?

Hi, I was driving home and my fan belt broke. My husband has just bought a new one but has no idea how to replace it?
Any suggestions welcomed and appreciated.

The brand is Ford Courier 2001 - I am from Australia and the brand is not listed

Thanks

If it is a serpentine belt.... there should be a sticker in the engine compartment that will show you the routing of the belt... if you can't see it... look up at the bottom of the bonnet when you open it.

a regular fan belt may require the remove of another belt to put on the new one.

My main belt broke while driving home, had car towed home we replaced the belts and car will not turn over its as if low battery but used another working battery so what else could it be


/mm.
What type of vehicle? Which type of belts?('V-belts or the wider (~1inch) multi-grooved Serpentine belt)
Your broken belt may have hit something when it broke. Does it click-click-click, or no responce to 'start' possition at key?
Might have knocked large battery cable, or small starter wire loose (or cut it 'open'), or some ground-wire, or ignition wire, or module/harness connector loose.

My audi a5 wont run it starts and cuts out since i fitted a new serpentine belt


How long does it run? Sure you only changed the serpentine belt? The car would actual even run without the serpentine (or also called accessory belt) since the belt only drives fairly non essential components (AC compressor, alternator, fan, power steering pump. etc).

THE CORD THAT TURN THE FAN AROUND IS BROKE


Are you talking about the fan belt? On this model car it's probably a flat belt (smooth on the outside and grooved on the inside) and is called a serpentine belt. Do not drive the vehicle with this belt broken, as it can lead to overheating the engine!

You can replace this yourself, but the way you phrased your question leads me to believe you don't possess a great deal of automotive mechanical knowledge / aptitude.

If I'm correct in this assessment, your best bet is to get a local mechanic to do this job for you.

Talk with friends, neighbors and relatives to get a consensus on a reputable local mechanic.

Good luck!

Battery light came on,no power steering.Tried to drive home,ABS light came on,wipers were slow also.Pulled in,car wouldn't start again.


It is most likely your alternator. Your alternator failed and then your battery lost its charge. Have the battery charged and tested before you replace anything just to double check. Either way, the battery needs to be charged seperately. Don't try to charge it with your new alternator or jumper cables as this could burn up your new alternator.

We need to replace a fan belt that broke. Does


You can do it. If it takes longer than 10 minutes something is wrong. If its a V8 make sure the tensioner is good, Fan belts rarely just "break" so check all the pulleys.

Hi! My fan belt broke a month or so ago and now


Could it have been your A/C compressor that locked up and threw your belts off? I would check to see if you can turn the clutch by hand. If not, that is the most likely cause. If so, you probably need to get it checked professionally.

Check and make sure the timing belt has not slipped. It's possible that the broken drive belt got under the timing belt and made it skip. If this happened, you are in for an expensive repair!

Driver shoulder seat belt strap hookup is stuck and won't move.


Hondas and other cars have their seat belts guaranteed for life. Call your local Nissan repair shop and see if this is so. If so, they shouldn't charge you a dime. I bought a very old used Honda once, the seat belt broke, and I got a brand new one installed for nothing.
