Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala
I'm having a heck of a time trying to get the old belt off. Is there a trick to loosening the tension-pully? I'm using a 15mm socket to try to turn the nut on the pulley to move it down, but it won't go. However when I pull on the belt itself, the additional tension causes the pulley moves down.
Can u turn the nut in the opposite direction that u have been trying? U need a lot of leverage to get enough tension off to remove the belt. If u have enough room, add a pipe to the end of your wrench, u will need a lot of room to move the tensioner enough. U might have better luck buying the wrench made for that purpose at a parts store. I think I paid about 25 a couple years ago, I couldn't fit a regular socket and wrench on the tensioner, it was a very tight space.
