SOURCE: Power steering idler pulley frozen. How do I

Hello,

So you have a frozen Idler Pulley. Usually, these are tensioner pulleys; where it moves up and down to tighten the belt (as i'm sure you know). There should be a bolt. Using a socket and rachet (long handled if possible; if not, use a ratchet with a bar, or an open end wrench for leverage. The bold should losen counter clockwise; standard (righy tighty, lefty loosy) ; It may take a bit of strength to break it loose, but it will come out. Once the bold is out, wiggle from side to side as you pull; may use a flat head screwdriver to help pry it off. Put the new one on, and tighten it up. NOTE: Depending on your belt direction of rotation, (and engine type) the pulley may want to move as you tighten it; Do this...tap the end of the racthet with a mallot or hammer once you have gotten it hand tight - it won't take much more after being hand tighten so don't beat up the ratchet trying to torque it on. As long as it's tight you can put the belt back on and be on your way. I sincerely hope this is useful information for you and helps you fix your car.

SOURCE: How do i replace the idler pulley in my 1993 Saturn Sc2

It might be best to remove the power steering pump and bracket, then pry engine away from passenger side. That should give you enough room.

Idler pulley bracket where can I buy one or is there an alternative to it


you need to post year, make, model and what engine?
also which idler pulley? I'm guessing you're probably looking at the accessories drive belt ("fan belt") idler pulley bracket.
Is this a serpentine belt.
a lot of cars use Idler and or tensioner pulleys on the timing belt/chain. the Idlers often don't have brackets
why are you replacing the bracket? did you break it? or do you just need the pulley? I normally replace both pulleys (idler and tensioner) when replacing either one.
anyways.. need a lot more info to answer your question

How to replace a idler pulley on a 1997 international 4700 series


Hi Melissa:
Nice truck!
I'm assuming that the bearings in the idler pulley are shot which is why you're replacin the pulley. Pulley's are typically attached by a bolt through their centre. Replacing the idler consists of getting the bolt out and exchanging new for old. Here's the route I would recommend:
SAFETY FIRST - Disconnect negative battery terminal.
- Make a diagram of belt routing.
- Slacken idler and remove belt
- Remove Idler retaing bolt (Watch for washers or spacers)
- Install new Idler with washers or spacers in same position.
- Tighten retaining bolt.
- Use diagram to re-install belt;
- Re-connect negative battery terminal.
- Check for stray tools or loose objects.
Test run.

Locate the idler pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley. The idler pulley bolts to the idler arm. The idler pulley is replaced with the arm because they are sold as one unit.

  • 2 Place a 3/8-inch ratchet driver into the square hole on the face of the idler pulley and pull up on the handle. This releases tension on the Sonoma's serpentine belt. Pull the belt off the idler pulley, lower and remove the ratchet handle.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the idler arm to the engine block using a socket and ratchet, and discard the old idler arm.
  • 4 Place the new idler arm against the engine block and secure it using the socket and ratchet.
  • 5 Put the ratchet driver into the square hole on the new idler pulley, pull up on the handle and place the serpentine belt over the pulley.
  • 6 Lower and remove the ratchet handle.

    I cant find a diagram however i can tell you how it goes. Starting at the alternator the belt goes completely around alternator (ridge side to pulley). pulley then over the water pump pulley (smooth side to the pulley), then down to the right around the tensioner pulley (smooth side to the pulley), then back to the left up and over the crank pulley (ridge side to the pulley), then to the right around the ac compressor (ridge side to the pulley), then up over the power steering pulley (ridge side to pulley) and then finally to the left over the idler pulley. have a good day.

    Noise on belt tensioner or idler pulley


    Carefully check the condition of the belt, the tensioner, and the idler pulley. I had the same thing happen and once I knew where to look, I could see that my idler pulley bearings were bad (understatement...they were GONE!)

    Your idler pulley and tensioner need to look even and straight and not leaning in or out. A sure sign of a problem is if one or the other leans in toward where the tension from the belt would be on it.

    The best way to check is to buy, rent, or borrow a serpentine belt wrench to take the pressure off and then try and wiggle the tension and idler pulley. If you feel any play, replace as soon as possible. I dragged my feet and ten days after I heard the noise, my idler pulley flew apart right as I pulled into work.

    Why belt keeps shredding


    usually due to a bad bearing, or from resistance due to a frozen or failing assemble, as in power steering, alternator, or an idler. The best way to determine is to remove the belt and check all pulleys for play and resistance.

    Problem with replacing serpentine belt on ml430


    Routing can be a problem, wrong belt can be also as stated before. I had to take replace the idler pulley which i recommend doing when replacing the belt. I routed the belt then placed it into the idler pulley then slid the idler pulley onto the boss that that the idler pulley tightens onto. I thought it was the routing even took the belt back, but when i did the above I was done in 5 minutes after spending an hour an a half.
