Hi there weekie,

Simple and easy. Really.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • 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 off.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Wheres the bolt on alternator 2010 corolla to release serpentine belt


The belt uses an automatic hydraulic tensioner to keep it tight. I believe a 19mm socket is used to rotate the tensioner to relieve tension on the belt. You hold be able to see it on the top of the engine just to the left of the upper motor mount as your looking down from the passenger side.

Replace serpentine belt 2003 corolla


Draw a picture of the belt and pulleys before you remove it, this saves nightmares of trying to re fit the new one.
Locate the belt tensioner, half way down the engine toward the rear. It has a small shock absorber like component attached to it. Once you locate this, look closely down there and on the bracket that holds this component and the pulley, you will see a hex shaped part of the bracket, This is shaped for you to put a socket or spanner on so you can use leverage to move the tension pulley away from the belt. One you do this flick the belt off. Release the tension and fit the new belt, leaving the tension pulley for last. This is easiest as the pulley does not have a lip on it that you need to stretch the belt over. Now move the pulley with the spanner or socket & bar one again and flick the belt over.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2001/make/toyota/model/corolla/2001_toyota_corolla_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm "HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

Should my husband and I attempt to replace the serpentine belt on a 2003 Toyota Corolla or take it to a auto shop?


the routing for the belt should be on a sticker under the hood, it is not complicated, you need a few common hand tools, you release the belt tentionser, remove old belt and install new one

How do I change the drive belt on a 2005 Toyota Corolla


Crank the tensioner to get some slack in the belt and slide it off the uppermost, most easily accessible pulley. Remove the old belt. Route the new belt in accordance with the belt routing diagram and crank the tensioner the same direction as before to begin getting the belt over the uppermost pulley. Slide a screwdriver under the belt and over the pulley to leverage the new belt on. Release the tensioner and check for belt tautness. If the belt is loose, you've either purchased the wrong size or have misrouted the serpentine belt.

Hi, I want to remove my worn alternator belt on my Toyota Corolla 1998 1.8L Engine 7AFE (not Serpentine belt). Anyone know correct procedure or how to release the belt tension? Thanks Phil Auckland New...


i use a 1/2 inch leverage bar .there is a hole in the tension pully(usually the top pully) put the end of the bar in the slot and pull. you will have to hold the tension on it with the bar while you remove the belt.
