In the area that i live the automotive shops charge anywhere from $50 To $85 per hour for labor. The tensioner can range also depending on the vehicle. Some where between $35 to $100 or so. It should only take no more than one hour to replace though. Your overall bill should not exceed $185 plus tax. If it is any more than that then I strongly advise you to start asking for an explanation fo this over pricing. Hope this helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: Replace serpentine belt on a 1995 Saturn sl1. 1.9 engine

Yes! It is a whole lot easier and faster to take off the passenger tire. Remove plastic cover with speed pins. It is a lot easier to get to the belt tensioner to release belt tension also.Just put a 14mm wrench or 9/16" wrench on the tensioner at the 4:00 o'clock position and push down the belt will be easy to remove and reverse this to install the new one GOOG LUCK *****badgto1NJ

SOURCE: how do i replace my Serpentine Belt Tensioner in

do a search on youtube, there are many videos there. basically you are going to have to release tension, open the service door behind the right front tire and remove two bolts and replace in reverse manner. again there are lots of videos of this on youtube. while you are doing it put in a new belt. the right side dogbone engine mount will be in front of you, replace that while you are at it unless you have already changed it.

My first impression would be the serpentine belt is worn ...specifically it has "glazed" and stretched so it no longer has the ability to effectively grip the drive pulleys it spins. Typically when the serpentine belt loses "traction" it will squeal as it slips on the metal pulleys of the accessories it is designed to operate. There also may be a problem with the the tensioner ...a device used to keep proper tension on the serpentine belt. This is an easy and relatively inexpensive repair ...probably cost between $100 and $200 ...depending on whether the tensioner needs replacing.
You really need to get this fixed. If the serpentine belt fails ...it breaks or comes apart ...you will lose power steering and the water pump as the two critical accessories the belt operates. Obviously the loss of power steering can make the car difficult to drive and the loss of the water pump will cause an engine overheat condition fairly quickly. The A/C and alternator will also drop off line but these aren't as critical as the steering and water pump.

Change serpentine belt on 06 sienna


  1. 1 Check to ensure the Sienna's engine is cold, then make sure the Sienna is in park, the ignition is in the off position and the key is removed from the ignition to prevent any possibility of the engine engaging during the serpentine belt replacement.
  2. 2 Open the hood and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram sticker on the side of the engine casing. Study it for a moment before removing the existing belt. It is essential the new belt be installed exactly as the diagram indicates.
  3. 3 Find the tensioner pulley, the main pulley that controls the serpentine belt, and fit a 1/2-inch socket wrench over the self-tensioner on the outside of the pulley.
  4. 4 Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt, then remove the belt.
  5. 5 Compare the old serpentine belt with the new, replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside. Be certain the replacement belt is the right part.
  6. 6 Fit the new belt on to each pulley according to the serpentine belt routing diagram on the manufacturer's sticker, or according to the drawing made prior to removing the old belt. Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.
  7. 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to ease back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
  8. 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

How do i release the tension belt ... cant seem to find bolt being referred to in other docs


Here's the procedure on how to release and replace the tension belt of your car.

Step 1
  • Open the hood on the Volvo S-60 and find the serpentine-belt routing diagram. The diagram should be attached to the top of the fan shroud that covers the radiator. If not, draw out the exact routing method of the serpentine belt around each pulley with a pen and a piece of paper.
  • Step 2 Locate the serpentine-belt tensioner that is in the very center of the engine. The tensioner will have a square bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 3 Slide the open end of the 5/8-wrench onto the square bolt head in the center of the belt-tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner pulley counterclockwise and slide the serpentine belt off of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 4 Remove the serpentine belt from the other pulleys and pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
  • Step 5 Slide the new serpentine belt into the engine compartment and around the crankshaft pulley.
  • Step 6 Route the new serpentine belt around each pulley. Turn the belt-tensioner pulley counterclockwise again and slide the serpentine belt around the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner and it will tighten the belt around the pulleys. Look over the belt to ensure that it is inside of each pulley.
  • Step 7 Crank the S-60 and look over the serpentine belt with the motor running. Let the engine run for about one minute and shut the engine off. Close the hood.

    I had 2003 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder in for


    While it is a possibility, having the tensioner lose tension seems more probable that it locking up as the mechanics have stated. You seem to know what you are talking about, so why not try throwing a wrench on it and turning it towards the serpentine belt? Then you can see for yourself if it has seized or not. It is the small pulley that doesn't seem to power anything like your AC compressor, alternator, fan, crank, powr streering. match a wrench to the size of the bolt and turn it, if it moves take the belt off (noting how it goes) and put the new one on saving you 280 dollars.

    Serpentine belt replacement


    2.0L Engines
    See Figures 11, 12 and 13
    The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
    Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
    The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
