2004 range rover serpentine belt replacement


There are 2 belts on the vehicle. It is EXTREMELY crirical to make sure you make a diagram of exact path of belt through the pulleys before removing it. If you dont, You will find it difficult if not impossible to figure it out after the fact. If you place it back wrong and it manged to fit severe engine damage could occur.
Standard procedure for any vehicle is to release tension on the tensioner pulley first'
This is accomplished by releasing tension on the pulley it is spring loaded and will release by placing the appropriate socket on the
pully and turning to release tension. (This can be difficult secondary to inadequate clearance. Lisle tools makes a tensioner pulley tool that I consider absolutely necessary.) then slip the belt off while maintaining force to keep tension off. release tension on tensioner again for clearance make sure belt is aligned properly on all pulleys befor you close the hood(bonnet).

Serpentine belt 1990 ford f150


Find the spring loaded Tensioner pulley and use a wrench on the nut in the center of the pulley to pull the pulley away from the belt. Once you have released enough tension, you can slip the belt off of one of the other pulleys and gently release the Tensioner pulley. slip the belt off the rest of the pulleys and put the new belt in the same way the old one came out, pulling the tensioner pulley out and slipping the belt back under it, before gently releasing. Make a note beforehand of how the belt is installed to be sure you get it back in correctly. The grooves in the belt should go against the grooved pulleys and the flat side of the belt should go against the flat pulleys. This diagram may be helpful.

How to Replace a Power Steering Belt


This is how to replace the power steering belt in 1995 ford explorer.
1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the negative post on the battery. Loosen the retaining bolt with a socket and ratchet, then remove the cable end from the terminal. Isolate the cable end from the battery to prevent accidental starting of the engine while you are working.
2. Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine and attach a socket and ratchet to the mounting bolt in the center of the pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt. Remove the belt from the pulleys while holding the tensioner away from the belt. Discard the old belt. Release the tensioner, slowly rotating it to the home position.
3. Install the new serpentine belt over all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and slide the new belt onto the tensioner pulley. Slowly rotate the tensioner counterclockwise, allowing it to tighten the belt.
4. Remove the socket and ratchet from the tensioner pulley. Install the negative battery cable on to the negative terminal of the battery. Tighten the retaining bolt with a socket and ratchet.
5. Start the engine, verifying that the belt is mounted correctly and running true over the pulleys.

How to install serpentine belt 1988 ford 150


Loosen the lock bolt on the upper part of the tensioner(arrowed in black). Release tension on the belt at the tensioner(arrowed in red) by turning counter clockwise on the pulley nut as indicated in blue.
Slip the belt off the pulleys while keeping pressure on the tensioner. Refit the new belt and make sure it is properly located on all the pulleys before releasing pressure on the tensioner. Tighten the lock bolt.
The tensioner is self adjusting you just need to make sure the belt is properly seated on all the pulleys before tightening the lock bolt.
The exact position of the tensioner varies on the different engines but the routing is the same and it is always between the alternator and power steering pulleys on the gas engines.

My belt is squealing really bad on my 96 Ford Probe SE 2.0 liter, i replaced the power steering pump, the power steering belt and it is still squealing. Is it a pulley?


Often these vehicles have a spring loaded tensioner, which you would have released to replace the belt. When the spring in the tensioner gets weak, causes a squeak.

Removal of 1997 ford aerostar power steering pump.


You have to find the belt tensioner. Then place a 3/8 th inch pull handle in the square hole on the tensioner body and push it away from the belt. Then slip the belt off of the tensioner pulley. It has a strong spring so make sure your hand is not pinched in something when you release the tensioner after the belt is removed. Some tensioners do not have a hole so you put a socket on the bolt holding the pulley.

Serpentine belt popping off


ONE OF THE PULLEYS ARE WORN OUT AND NOT ALIGNED PROPERLY WITH THE OTHERS. LOOK AT THE TENSIONER AND IDLER PULLEYS. ONE OF THESE COULD BE THE CAUSE. REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT AND ROTATE THE PULLEYS BY HAND TO SEE WHICH ONE IS EITHER SQUEAKING OR LOOSE ON ITS BEARING. REPLACE THE BAD ONE AND YOU SHOULD BE ALL SET. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK
