Hi maroon,

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator. Double check your routing.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

To loosen and remove the drive belt on a 2004 Toyota 1.4L engine you simply use a wrench and pull up on the spring-loaded tensioner.1d45837.gif
You should be aware, however, that if you are experiencing problems with belt squeal or rattling noise, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) for your vehicle that provides information for an updated tensioner assembly.

You shouldn't have to loosen anything. There should be an idler pulley. It will be a spring loaded pulley which keeps the belt tight. To remove your belt, once you locate pulley, release the tension by using a socket and pull/push untill belt loosens, (with 2 people is easier) MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO PUT IT BACK ON!!! Go online, or factory, and get a diagram of belt routing.

How do I release belt tensioner 2007 Toyota rav 4 4cyl


I just changed the serpentine belt on a 2003 Toyota RAV4. The 3/4 protrusion is the correct place to relieve the tension. A half inch drive socket ratchet and cheater bar is necessary to relieve the tesion on the belt. It is a pain in the *&^% to do. Also if the belt is not stretched you have to turn the alternater pulley with a #10 socket and ratchet while feeding the belt on. Two person job to do this. Hope this helps good luck!!!!

I have a 2003 rav4 v4 and I'm replacing the serpentine belt. What do I loosen to remove the old belt and install new?


Look for a tensioner pulley. It's spring loaded to maintain tension on the belt. It's a pulley that does not spin a device like alternator, power steering pump or AC compressor. If you put a wrench on it and push it one way or another you can overcome the spring tension and the belt will just pop off. Check the belt routing diagram under the hood when you reinstall a new belt. It should identify the tensioner pulley, sometimes known as an idler pulley.

Loosen the tensioner pulley to remove the belt. It is the one that has a long bolt running through it. Once you remove the old belt, install the new one using the appropriate diagram from the above two links. Readjust the tension using the bolt you loosened to remove the old belt.

i hope this helps
