    Well teh tensioner has a spring in it so it will be hard to move it to get the belt on. But it you move it in the direction to take the tension off the belt does it spring back or stay put ? if it stays put its bad you will need a new serpintine belt tentioner

I have a chirping or bearing sounding noise, that I am trying to isolate on my daughters college car. Sound varies with RPM.


Get an inexpensive mechanics stethoscope and put the end on the shaft part of idler pulleys, housing near bearings of alternator and water pump etc.
If that doesn't give clear results, try squirting a little water on the serpentine belt as if runs [a length of small drip irrigation hose works really well to get a little water on the belt]. The water will provide harmless temporary lubrication to the belt and change the sound if it is caused by the belt slipping.

I have a 09 lancer rallyart and the serpentine belt keeps wanting to slip off any ideas and all the teath lined up right


This is usually caused by a bad idler or tensioner pulley. If the bearing for one of these pulleys goes bad, it can cause the pulley to kick sideways just a little bit, which is often enough to misalign or even throw the belt.

To check, remove the belt and check the idler and tensioner pulleys for free play in the bearing.

Hope this was helpful

Replaced serpentine belt on 1995 dodge ram 1500 and squeal's and chirp's like mad .help me please!!


Make sure that a) none of the pulleys are loose due to failing bearings b) that the belt tensioner is applying enough tension to the belt c) belt tensioner damper is working. First twist the belt by hand between the longest point between pulleys by about 90 degrees. This should be difficult to do if the tensioner is applying correct tension. Next while the engine is idling look at the belt alignment from the side to be sure the belt is not wandering backwards and forwards on the pulleys. Also see if the tensioner pulley is bouncing about. Perhaps best to again remove belt and wiggle each pulley by hand to detect any play in the bearings. If tensioner is bouncing it is likely the damper spring is not working as it should.

1994 Chevy K1500 5.7 liter- replaced serpentine belt.next day got a chirp.replaced idler pulley,alternator,and tensioner pulley, but not the actual tensioner.sounds like chirp is coming from power steering...


The chirp is from scale or a glaze on one of the pulleys. If not black or shiney in color clean it with brake cleaner and spray some belt dressing on the pulleys

Rubber smell chirping sound smoke


I am assuming that the smell, smoke and chirp are from under the hood.
That would be a pulley locked up, most likely the serpentine belt tensioner.

Change serpentine belt and tension pulley and idle pulley and


could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

How to reattach serpentine belt on 1999 saab 9-3


The Saab accessory drive (serpentine) belt is self-tensioning by means of a tensioning pulley. Excessive play means that the current belt is spent and must be replaced. It is a very good idea to replace the idler pulley above the tensioner pulley at this time as the bearings fail over time. You can get an aftermarket pulley of machined billet aluminum construction with a repalceable bearing race from Wazee Pulleys. This pulley is superior to the stock one in just about every conceivable way.
To remove the belt you will need a 1/2 inch socket extension bar that will fit exactly in the top of the tensioning pulley housing and a six mm allen key which you will use to lock the tensioner assembly into this position relaxing the belt. This site shows the proper routing of the stock belt and the routing procedure to bypass the highly failure prone center idler pulley if your car has that (yours should not), as well as the procedure to remove and fit a new belt. Note, the belts shown on this site are for the short-belt modification only. See also, this site for additional information. Another diagram is here with part numbers for the pulleys and the belt.
To remove the belt, you will find it best to remove the airbox to allow you more room at the top end to work. Also, jack up the car and remove the passenger wheel to give you access down below.

Serpentine belt wont stop slipping


sounds like your belt tensioner pulley may be defective, also check all the pulleys for excessive play in the pulley bearings, these are the most common causes.
