SOURCE: belt tensioner

It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The tensioner is located underneath the lower cover along side the timing belt on the passenger side. It has two bolts that hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.

The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.

It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.

When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.

And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace the tensioner, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it right.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to install serpantine belt tensioner on 2000 pontiac grand am

Hello,
Basically, Remove the belt. Then remove the bolt that the tensioner pivots on and remove it. It's fairly easy.You may need to remove the belt pulley to make it easier.
The problem comes as your trying to get to it. If you can't see it well or something is in the way. Like the plastic overflow tank or something like that. Then you will need to remove what is keeping you from getting to the tensioner. I did one on a four cylinder last week. The belt pulley on that one had a left hand thread. The tensioner itself should be right hand thread.
Good luck.

SOURCE: how to replace a serpentine belt on a 2004

  1. Lift the car so you can work from underneath when needed.
  2. Disconnect the battery . Just to be safe.
  3. Take the serpentine belt off.
  4. Remove the alternator.
  5. Remove the A/C compressor. (You can do it without removing, but it's a royal PITA... LOL) Don't unhook the lines, just unbolt and move out of the way.
  6. Remove the worn tensioner from t he block. (You need to unbolt the pulley first to get to all the tensioner bolts)

SOURCE: I need a diagram for a surpentine belt on a 2004

The label that has the diagram is located either under the hood with the engine emissions info sticker, or on the front crossmember of the engine bay. If the sticker is missing, this page has all the diagrams to every serpentine belt they sell. The link to the diagram will be on the left; look for it because it doesn't appear as a link.

Hope this helps,
matt

How to put supertine belt on 2004 grand prix


Under the hood there will be a routing diagram for the serpentine belt. Use that as a guide for replacement routing. There is an automatic belt tensioner in the loop. Use an appropriate tool to release the tension on the old belt and remove it from the vehicle. Route the new belt as per the diagram and allow the automatic tensioner to re-tension the belt.

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6) when I turn my engine on, should my belt tensioner move at all? It moves a bit


its suppose to move up to 1/2", it is spring loaded!! Now if its squealing or chirping at startup or when the engine is revved, the tensioner is probably worn and needs replacing along with the belt!!

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) how do I remove and replace my serpentine belt successfully?


Instructions Things You'll Need
  • 3/8-inch drive breaker bar
  • Metric socket kit
  • New serpentine belt
    • 1

      Park the Pontiac in a safe work area and open the hood.

    • 2

      Inspect the top of the black plastic cover that surrounds the fan for the serpentine belt routing diagram. This diagram has the instructions for installing the new serpentine belt around the accessory pulleys.

    • 3

      Inspect the front of the engine and locate the automatic belt tensioner. The tensioner on the 1999 Pontiac model vehicles is located between the alternator and the crankshaft pulley. The tensioner has a pulley on one end with a bolt head in the center of the pulley. Use the bolt head to rotate the tensioner.

    • 4

      Turn the tensioner counterclockwise with the breaker bar and a metric socket. Pull the belt out from under the tensioner pulley with your other hand. Then, slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops.

    • 5

      Pull the belt out of the other remaining pulleys. Then, pull the belt out of the engine bay and lay it on the ground.

    • 6

      Route the new belt around the crankshaft pulley. Then, route the new belt around the other remaining pullleys by using the serpentine belt routing diagram for instructions.

    • 7

      Rotate the tensioner pulley counterclockwise with the breaker bar and socket. Then, slide the new belt under the tensioner pulley. Slowly let the tensioner retract until it stops. The tensioner pulls all of the slack out of the belt and brings the new belt to the proper tension. Remove the breaker bar and socket from the tensioner pulley.

    • 8

      Inspect the new belt to ensure that it is seated inside of all the accessory pulleys as directed by the diagram. Then, crank the engine and allow it to run for about 15 seconds. Turn the engine off. Inspect the belt again once more to ensure that
      the belt is still around each pulley. Close the hood.

How difficult is it to change the serpentine belt tension assembly on the 1995 pontiac grand am with the V6? Does the engine need to raised out of the vehicle?


the engine does not have to be raised
.you need a serpentine tool.it is a flat bar with hex cut outs for the pulley.or a shallow socket and ratchet.
the tensioner need to be slack to put on the new belt. draw a diagram of the belt routing of the old belt. the crankshaft is easier put on from the bottom.there is not alot of space and the belt has to be twisted sideways past a few pulleys.
