    doesn't seem to work...I have a 2001 ranger 3.0 and cannot get the belt back on. There's not enough room to even move your hands around. What's the trick?

Hi there,

It really is easier than you think. The routing diagram will be under the hood. Here's how you get the belt on. No prybar necessary.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

    changing a serpentine beltUsually, A serpentine belt system has a spring-loaded idler. Using the proper wrench, usually an 18mm, one can relieve the tension on the belt, making it relatively easy to change the belt. On most vehicles you will find a sticker either on the underside of the hood or somewhere in the engine compartment that shows how the belt goes on.
