It is the pulley on the tensioner. put wrench on the bolt itself and push. the tensioner will move. the fan is hard to remove on those trucks but if you can break it loose first with the belt on it then once it is broke loose remove belt it makes it a lot easier. hope it helped

Changing serpentine belt on 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4.8 v8


The belt has tension applied to it from an idler pulley arm. you need to release tension by using a socket and ratchet on the nut on the idler pulley. Release tesion and slide belt off . Make sure you have the diagram for serpentine belt. it is usualy under the hood. If not make a diagram yorself before removing belt.

Where would I find the tensoner on the sierra 1500 ?? any thoughts Thanks


the serpentine belt tensioner is on the front of the mototr and usually on the left. it is spring loaded and usually require a 3/8" ratchet or 15 mm wrench to release tension and remove the belt. when installing a new serpentine belt, make sure you can read the writing like your holding a book in your hand. if its upside down they have tendency to squeek later.

I need to replace a serpentine belt on a 2001 GMC sierra 4.8L. I see the belt tensioner for the AC belt, but the tensioner for the main belt is less obvious. There is an idler pulley but it does not look...


it is decieving. if the tensioner has an extension of about two inches from the base, it takes a 15 mm to lift it, be easy, make sure the wrench is not going to touch anything as you release it after taking the belt off

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
