One of the pulleys is a tensioner that you move to release tension from the belt. It pivots on a bolt.

SOURCE: My 1998 Caravan has a bad squeek in the belt

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.

SOURCE: need alternator belt diagram for a 2001 dodge

Accurate diagrams are tough to find online ... the easiest place to find the right ones would be in a Haynes manual (available at most auto-parts stores). This will give you the accurate diagrams, and directions (with pictures and precautions, and common problem solutions) for your make and model of car. The manual is written based on a complete tear down and rebuild of the car .. and will help with any future car repairs that you will need to do. I have not been without one for any car I have owned in more than 10 years -- they really are THAT good -- and for around $20 US, it will probably save you thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of your car.
I have tried finding diagrams online, but they are often listed under the wrong model, year or engine size ... so finding the one that actually applies to your car is a hassle -- and even if you find the right one, it's tough to reference a computer when you are working on your car. I assure you that you will have an easier time if you get the Haynes manual.

How do you remove the tensioner pulley on a 1998 Saab 900 SE Convertible 2.0


Disconnect the Negative Battery Cable
2. Remove the air breather/cleaner and hose from between the air breather/cleaner and throttle housing
3. Remove the strain of the belt tensioner off the belt and pry off the belt
4. Remove the right front wheel
5. Remove the belt cover & Disconnect the battery Cable and the red alternator power wire.
6. Remove the two Alternator Bolts that secure the alternator to the bracket
7. Remove the three bolts that hold the header pipe up to help give room to remove the alternator
8. Remove the converter bolt from the converter bracket and mover the converter over to aid in the alternator removal
9. Refit in reverse

Working from Top down:
disconnect battery 2) not necessary to remove airfilter box but does give more breathing room for belt removal/instal 3) un-tension serpentine belt with a 1/2" drive long extension in the square of the tensioner & pull towards the front of the car to release the serpentine belt 4) lock tensioner with about a 4mm pin(Allen key will do) by pulling forward with that 1/2"drive extension & pinning the tensioner with that hole 5) remove tensioner with 8mm Allen key or drive(not necessary to remove R side engine mount & raise engine) and be careful to not knock and cause to release the tensioner-they hurt when they snap! 6) remove upper alternator bolt(8mm Allen key/drive).

Working from Bottom of the engine bay:
disconnect cables at alternator(13 & 8 mm nuts) 8) remove R wheel/inner fender skirt that covers the harmonic balancer(10 & 8 mm heads)/ tie back flex hose to strut 9) remove lower alternator bolt(8mm alley key/drive) 10) wedge/rotate out alternator of its mounts 11) disconnect exhaust pipe rubber hangers at catalytic converter and mid section of exhaust 12) you can bend(and later re-bend into position the hanger studs) (OR undo front header studs/nuts to free up the front part of the exhaust) to push over the exhaust and pull out the alternator(pulley nose down)--be careful when getting the alternator out as the downstream O2 sensor is right there(a good precaution would be to remove it)......reverse procedures to install.

I need to replace the tensioner on my 96 mercury mystique and i need to know what to do


Hi, pick your engine from among the cases below. Use a wrench or 3/8 inch socket head to rotate the tensioner clockwise. While holding the tensioner, take the belt off the alternator pulley, then release the tension. Leave the belt on the rest of the pulleys. Remove the bolt holding the tensioner to the engine. Note the angle of the tensioner--there is usually some type of index pin to properly orient the tensioner angle on the engine. Replace with the new tensioner, ensuring the indexing pin is in it's hole and insert the bolt. Tighten the bolt well. Turn the tensioner clockwise again and put the belt back on the alternator pulley. Release the tensioner. Start the engine and observe the belt to insure it is properly driving the pulleys and is centered on each one. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using Fixya.

How can i fit engine belt of hyundai azera 2009


  • Find the tensioner. The serpentine belt tensioner is what holds the belt in place with the correct tension: it is held to the engine by two bolts. Some describe the Hyundai Sonata tensioner pulley as attached to a teardrop shape, with the bolts holding the structure to the engine.
  • 2 Remove the two bolts near the tensioner with your wrench (bolt size may vary by model). Take off the tensioner and the belt.
  • 3 Use a belt routing diagram or your own sketches to replace the serpentine belt. This is helpful for some models: from the power steering pump, the belt goes to the left of the idler pulley, then over and around the right side of the air conditioner compressor pulley, around the left side of the crank pulley, to the right of the tensioner pulley, and down to the alternator.
  • 4 Replace the tensioner and the new belt together. Mechanics recommend seating the belt on the tensioner before replacing the tensioner onto the engine rather than trying to pry the belt over the pulley.
  • 5 Tighten the two lock bolts that hold the tensioner.
  • 6 Check to see that the belt is seated correctly on all of the pulleys. Run the engine and observe to check for proper installation.

    Replacing drive belt for Kia Sorento


    You have three belts on your sorento
    one for the A/C
    one for power steering
    And one for the alternator

    to remover the power steering and alternator you need to loosen the tensioner center nut, then loosen the tensioner adjuster bolt. its easier to explain with a diagram.
    to remover the alternator belt, you have to do that from under the car, which means removing the lower engine cover. the same methods applies to the alternator belt, loosen the tension centre nut, then loosen the adjuster bolt.

    by they way, sorentos with the new 3.8 engine have only one belt, thats 2007 and up.
