Question about Hoover Cars & Trucks
The dryer started making a whining noise a few days ago then stopped working. After taking off the front and examining the belt and tensioner I saw that the pin on one of the pulley wheels had sheared off out of the arm so the wheel was at an angle and jammed on the arm. I can get a replacement pully arm but how do I go about getting to it and removing the old one? The hole I was looking at it through is that little bit too small to work through! Do I need to remove the drum? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The tension pulley is attached to the whole tension assembly it should come off as a unit normally 1 bolt in the center maybe it is stuck to the motor try tapping on it to break it free

I just replaced my auto tensioner tonight which was making a noise. It was pretty difficult as there is not much space and it is very hard to get the tools in there. The way you remove the tensioner is to first remove the main drive belt. Then you need to remove the bolts to the power steering pump. I did not remove the power steering pump lines, as the book recomended. Lastly, and the most diffecult part was removing the final bolt ( 1 of 3 ) on the tensioner itself which was hidden at the bottom of the tensior. This bolt was obstructed by one of the engine mounting brakets which I had to remove. The installation if the exact reverse. I was able to buy a Gates Tensioner from Amazon.com for $27.00. It worked well and stopped the noise. The entire process took about 4 hours, due to the tightness. I don't advise you to try it unless you have good tools, and plenty of patience. I'm glad its over, and the total cost was only $27.00 which I guess made it worth it.

SOURCE: Serpentine belts keeps shredding
would help if i knew what car it was ,main cause of this problem is one of the plastic wheel/tensioner is faulty if you look carefully then you will that it should have a guide like a train wheel with a falnge on either side and one or both of these flanges have broken away so the without the guide the belt runs on the edge of the wheel and it shreds .not the first time i have seen this
