Replace belt tensioner pulley on 1994 buick skylark

I have the serpentine wrench rented, but can't get it on the tensioner bolt. I cannot reach the nut to take off the pulley either.

Is there a fairly simple way to get at the tensioner or pulley?

You need to put a piece of wood underneath the oil pan and place a jack underneath the oil pan/motor, loosen the motor mounts that are next to the belts, then raise the motor enough to reveal the nuts/bolts for pulley...just dont raise the oil pan so high that you crush it or break something, only enough to be able to reach tension pulley...

You have to take off the power steering pump to get to it.

THERES ONLY ONE WAY TO DO IT.IF ITS THE RIGHT TOOL IT SHOULD FIT.DONT TAKE THE PULLEY OFF OF THE TENSIONOR,JUST GET THE TENSIONER WRENCH ON THE PULLEY NUT,RELEASE THE TENSION TO REMOVE THE BELT. (YOU MAY HAVE TO MOVE THINGS OUT OF YOUR WAY TO GET TO THE TENSIONER)

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    How do I replace the alternator


    Hello, Alternators are a car part that can be very costly to fix because of labor costs. But with an hour or two of time and a little elbow grease, you can do it yourself. And to replace the alternator follow the following steps below:

    Step 1. Pull your car into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool.

    Step 2. Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery.

    Step 3. Remove the serpentine belt from the pulley on the alternator. Do this by using a socket wrench to turn the serpentine automatic belt tensioner so that it allows slack in the belt. Then simply slip the belt off the alternator pulley.

    Step 4. Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble.

    Step 5. Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the car.

    INSTALLING NEW ALTERNATOR.

    Step 1. Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet.

    Step 2. Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place.

    Step 3. Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one.

    Step 4. Adjust the serpentine belt tensioner the same direction you did in Section One to put slack in the belt. Wrap the belt around the pulley of the new alternator and then remove the socket wrench from the automatic belt tensioner.

    Step 5. Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram.

    Step 6. Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.

    Thanks

    In order to replace the serpentine belt on a 1994 Buick Skylark It appears that something has to be removed in order to remove the belt and replace it. What exactly has to be removed?


    Nothing has to be removed. Just relieve the tension on the belt and it will come off. Find the tensioner pulley and pry it back. Look for a square hold where you insert a 1/2" ratchet. If you find none look for a way to pry it back. All you have to do is relieve the tension.

    Changing the serpentine belt


    Your vehicle has an automatic belt tensioner. It should be located near the other pullies because the belt runs over it too. Usually required is a ratchet or box end wrench to work it. Once you get the wrench on the pulley, pull the tensioner loose to remove the belt and the reverse to replace it. The vehicle should have a routing diagram for the belt.
    I believe the belt diagram is on the left corner on the passenger side.
    Good luck and hope this helps

    1994 buick roadmaster serpentine belt installation instructions. What do I loosen to get the belt off?


    there is a belt tensioner that keeps the belt tight you have to either use a serpentine belt wrench or a breaker bar to move the tensioner to remove the belt. often times you can rent the serpentine belt wrench from a auto parts store like O'Reilly's for a small deposit which you get back after you return the wrench
