I've just done a fanbelt and tensioner on a vauxhall omega 2.0l 16v now every time i start it up the belt slips ove 1 of the pulley it doesnt fall all of the way of it just slips over 1 rib. i was wondering if you had a diagram of how it went and if you could confirm the only reason that belt is slipping of is because one of the pulleys is not running true. Thanks

How do i remove fanbelt

look for a belt tenshoner pulley, on some they have a place to insert a hex hey or a standard bolt, use a wrachet with a long handle and push the tensioner down away from the belt because its on a loaded spring. while holding the tensioner down with one hand, slip the belt off the pulley. release the tensioner and slip of the belt. When putting on the new belt repeat the same steps; tensior pushed down, slip on the belt release tensioner

How do i put fanbelt back on a 1988 cadillac Deville I can get belt over the hump

there is a tension pully that you need tocompress in order for your belt to go ovetr the pulley there are no adjustment bolts for the belt it is done all by the tension pulley it is the pulley that has a 1/2square so that you can put a 1/2 ratchet or breaker bar on and decompress with this will solve all your belt problem

I have replaced the tension pulley and the other free spinning pulley "same size" pulley s and also replaced belt and the belt keeps falling off tension pulley and it is a very very strong...

The tensioner is most likely bad and not just the pulley. If the spring is weak look at the original marks on the original pulley. The belt should ride towards the engine side of the pulley and not the rounded outer edge.

For 1999 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 16V timing belt replacement interval is: 60000 km (37500 miles), or 48 months (4 years). Replace also tensioner roller, (the same interval) !

You have to remove the main serpentine belt first. this is done with a 15mm wrench put on the tensioner. then from the bottom you can get to the a/c belt tensioner. install a 3/8 ratchet on it and remove tension from belt. I find the only way to get belt on and off is too slip it off the tensioner then off the backside of crank pulley then slide off of a/c compressor then install new belt onto the crank letting it fall off the backside run belt around compressor tensioner then work around crank pulley
