Serpintiene belt tensioner replacment

I had a serp belt break on me about a week ago, so i replaced it and i got a very loud annoying squeel when im in drive. I put belt dressing on it and it lasts from 1 to 5 minuets before squeeling again. i brought it in and they diagnosed it with a bad serp belt tensioner. It is a 200 dollar repair so im going to do it. i was just wondering what's the process?

Personally it is a really tight area to work in and if you are not experienced with mechanics i would get a pro to do it as if you misalign the pulley or break any bolts on it you are really screwed try jew the mechanic down as it is only about a 1 hour job if you know what you are doing

Squeeling after replacing all belts and the tensioner pulley?


Still sounds like the belts, not much will cause that type of noise. You can completely remove all belts and start engine to see if noise is still there, no harm to engine to run it for a minute or two with no belts. You will know for sure then.

2000 Mustang V-6: New Sepentine Belt installed two years ago with very little mileage since (< 1000 miles) and the belt squeels upon engine exceleration. The tension seems way to low as I can easily...


Hi...if you can easily push on the belt then replacement of your tensioner is definitely needed. It has one bolt holding it in place and if you look carefully at the arm of the tensioner you should see a square hole that was designed to use either a 3/8" or 1/2" drive ratchet. Determine what size yours is and insert it into the square hole on the tensioner arm to loosen the tension on the serpentine belt to temporarily and partially remove it in order to remove your old tensioner and replace it with the new one. NOTE: You will have to determine which way to set your ratchet to release tension on your serpentine belt...either "Righty = Tighty" or "Lefty = Loosey"! Next bolt on your new tensioner and again use your rachet to release tension in order to get your serpentine belt back on. Just be careful as your new tensioner will have way more spring power! Any questions just ask.

How to replace belt merc 190d 1985-cant get enough slack to get over pulleys


do not use the tensioner. it has tendency to break a they require a little more time to change. take the belt and use your muscle to get it over the pulleys. make sure you can read the writing on the belt (as you would be holding a book). if its upside down, you stand the possibilty of it squeeling. when you get the belt over the pulley. gently tighten the adjuster until there is just enough tension on the belt that it will not jump excessively and squeel. be careful

this peice belongs to your power steering pulley its a plastic o\piece that over time brakes off you can either call your dealer and see if its covered by your warranty because its has to be replaced the pats that the plastic belongs on is top pulley you 'll notice powersteering wheel hard to steer and squeeling you must replace part or adjust it so its holding pulley tight itshas grooves in it 2 as a matter of fact if you keep using this pulley with broken plastic it could brake your belt

The fan clutch was replaced but the same noise which sounds like an airplane taking off is still present when accelerating at any speed. Does the fan motor need to be replaced also?


Could be your belt tensioner is worn out and needs replacing, common for a 10 year old vehicle. Is it a loud squeeling noise? if so then it's the belt slipping and rubber on metal pullys is a loud screeching noise

98 mercury villager power dteering noise and hard to turn


The squeeling noise you hear could be the bearings in your power steering pump, when bearings go bad they tend to make a squeeling noise.

Cahnging the belts on the fx35


There are 2 seperate belts the a/c and the serp belt. In order to change the belts, there is a special tool that you will need to purchase or rent from Auto Zone. Without this tool you can not replace the belt. Once you get the tool it's one bolt that turns and lets the tension off the pulleys in order to replace the belts. Just did this last week on MY FX35.

Engine noise on area of pulleys and sometimes engine tries to sto


Don't know if this helps. Had squeel in belt area. Occasionally engine would stop when squeel got loud and sometimes engine would try to quit while going at various speeds. Found tensioner pulley was bad and changed it. Still squeeled and engine would stop when squeel got loud. This time while sitting in yard. Further checking found binding in power steering pump. Will be putting on new one tomorrow. Hope it works. Will update.
