U either have the wrong belt or it is routed wrong or the belt is not fully seated in the grooves of the pulleys.

How do I install a serpentine belt?


To remove your old belt rotate the tensioner pulley counter clockwise until you have enough slack to slide the belt off. Slowly lower the tensioner pulley back into it's reliefed position. Be careful

On my 2001 sl. i cant seem to get enough slack for belt install. how far should the tensioner move?


The tensioner should move quite abit, make sure your putting your wrench or socket

on the extension of the tensioner, and not where it bolts down, and normally it gives

clockwise or to the right. good luck!

The frontmost belt came off of my 2003 suipercharged nissan frontier engine and I can't figure out how to put it back on


The adjuster should be on the left side at the alternator. Loosen the adjuster to get enough slack to install belt. The fan goes through the belt first then onto the pulleys.

Installation of new serpentine belt on 2002 Chevy Cavalier


Use a 3/8" socket end to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise. It may seem stiff, but that's a good thing... you want the tension to be there. After it's off the tensioner the belt will pretty much just come out of place and off the other pulleys. ***make sure you orientate the belt as it was originally (ac or w/ ac)...diagram should be on the front shroud.

Installing accessory belt on 94 Buick P/Ave ultra.


You must press on tensioner to make room for new belt. The tensioner then re-traps and keep belt tension when new belt in on. So in other words you have to put belt over all othe pulley leaving tensioner for last using a 3/8 ratchet with out a socket (just the square end) in the hole thats in the tensioner pushdown/up to make room for belt to slide on. If the belt seems short make sure that it is routed the correct way. Good Luck get back to me if you need more help and leave me a "rating". Thanks

Power steering pump--2001 hyundai elantra


If it's not a serpetine belt, max deflection of 3/4" on longest segment should be safe,  don't make alternator belt tight as a drum or you will burn out alternator bearings quickly.  If it has serpentine belt, the spring tensioner should keep the belt properly tensioned unless it's worn out.
It only needs to be tight enough to not slip, too loose will squeal and you will have to tighten,  to tight will kill alternator and you will spend $$.
