Tensioner is a pulley wheel with a 17mm nut in middle where you put a ring spanner on and turn it against the spring loaded mechanism .if your not mechanically minded call a mobile mechanic

It's pretty easy take the serpenten belt off if it has a motor mount on top of the serpenten belt you will have to jack up on the motor on the right side to releive the pressure on the mount remove the mount and tensioner should be a 13 or 15 millimeter bolt remove install new one put serpentine belt on then motor mount good to go thanks.

Wy the serpentine belt in cavalier engine its out.Change by one new and the same problem."HELP".


Check the pulleies for slop in and out, back and forth. If it moves replace it. Also the tensioner will hang out when the belt is on. this is bad replace. this will solve your problem. also to check put the belt on, if any pullies are not in line/ straight replace it.

Change a serpentine belt on a 1996 chevy cavalier


Diagram should be under the hood
The auto tensioneris down low and dificult to get to.
If it has not been changed in a while you will need a long thin push stick and a serpentine tool.
Push on the belt hard at the auto adjuster and pop the belt off the smooth pully (located top).
hook up the serpentine belt tool and then mount the new belt

The tensioner pulley on my 1997 Cherolet Cavalier Z24 will not move so I can replace my serpentine belt. The old belt wore off while driving.


You will have to replace your serpentine belt tensioner. Call local auto parts store and ask them if you can get just the pully or if you have to by the whole tensioner. Call around and don't be surprised if you can't get what you need from your local auto parts store because some do not carry after market belt tensionrs. In this case you will need to order it from a GM dealership's parts department.

How do I release the belt tension pully to replace serpentine belt


You can run down to your local auto parts store and buy a serp belt tool. Or you can take a 3/8 drive ratchet, locate the 3/8 square hole in your tensioner and put the ratchet in the hole. For more leverage I put a deep socket over the ratchet handle and put a long 3/8 extention in the deep socket. This will provide ample leverage and will save buying more tools you do not need. Simply move the tensioner to the direction that takes pressure off of the belt.

1992 2.2 serpentene belt tensioner replacement


The tensioner should have a bolt in the middle of it. But also there should be a bolt in the mibble of the pully. If you are replacing the tensioner assy. 1st remove the belt 2nd remove the bolt. the tensioner assy. will have a specific way of going on If you tighten the new one down ad it will not move it is on wrong and try again. If just replacing the pully just remove the belt take the bolt out of the old pully and install new one. Do to space constraints this can be a knuckle buster be careful. If any more questions please ask. Have a great day. PS. I recomend to everyone who does work on there vehicles to buy a chilton or haynes manual from their local auto parts store. It has detailed instructions and pictures to help. These are usualy about $20
