What fan belt do I buy to replace the one that broke in my 1989 Pinnacle Motor home? It is 29' long,and has a 454 V8 engine...

The engine has a belt tensioner that swings up and you remove the belt but in your case you will just move it up in order to put on the new belt. There is a diagram on the radiator support that shows the routing of the belt. Tell the parts store you need a belt along with the year and engine size and if with air or no air and they should fix you up.
Does the belt have 6 ribs inside and is the Belt for the alternator or power steering unit. 29 inch seem small for a fan belt. Let me know.
If you go to
It will show a diagram with the belts and below that the part numbers. One of the numbers is for NAPA parts. I did find one air cleaner number but not sure it will fit. The number is a Fram PRA3549. Good luck.

Do alternator belts go by any other name ? Husband just had new alternator installed and was told the belt is worn. What do i ask for? and does the same belt go by different names?

Hi Charterdhear,
The proper name is the serpentine accessory drive belt.(Or serpentine belt for short). One belt drives all the components on the engine. The car you are asking about has different engine sizes available.You will need to know the size when ordering the part. They will also ask if you have air conditioning. Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks,Chuck

Need to know how to replace fan belt in 02 santa fe

First, you need to make sure you have the routing diagram on how to put the belt back on. You didn't mention your engine size, so i have included diagrams for both engines offered in 2002.

I cant put my surpatian belt back on i would like to know how to release the tension on the fan belt on the 1994 buick lesabre custom in order to replace the alternator

Put an 18mm, or whatever size is correct, socket on 1/2" drive bar, or ratchet , and put it securely on nut in center of tensioner pulley. Standing in front of car, you need to pull it upward, with bar on right side, or from passenger side, pull toward you with bar pointing upward. If no socket, try a long wrench same size that will fit on nut good & snug, be sure in each case to pull as straight as possible to avoid wrench slipping off.

I am in the process of changinging a thermostat and need to know how to remove the fan. I removed the 4 screws to the pulley but the fan would not come off. please help

what year is it?
if it's an E36 it should have a viscous coupling.
you need a very large spanner or large cresent, [cant remember size] put the pulley & belt back on & tighten. the put the spanner or cresent on the large nut behind the viscous coupling & with a hammer give the spanner a quick hard wack clockwise to loosen. usually one or two decent hits free it enough to undo by hand. then put back together opposite directions. hope this helps.
