You will have to remove theengine mount in front of the timing cover then jack the engine up with a floor jack be careful not to damage the oil pan i usually put a piece of two by four between the jack and oil oan to keep from crushing it just watch and use your judgement when the engine is high enough.this will give you enough room to replace the tensioner it will still be a tight fit but trust me it will come out

How to Change the serpentine belt?


the belt is routed around various pulleys depending and the engine you have. The tensioner pulley is a spring-loaded assembly which keeps the belt tight on the pulleys. On the 3.0 L Duratech engine, it located on the pass. side toward the back- near and lower to the power steering pump and reservoir. It has a pulley about 3 inches diameter with a metric bolt in the center (very tight spaces to work with). A long wrench or socket on ratchet can move the pulley and assembly away from belt, taking tension off belt while you hold it in place. Alternately, the assembly arm itself may have a square 3/8" hole to insert a ratchet drive in order rotate the pulley against spring pressure to relieve tension on belt. Then slip belt off and route it out. Again, VERY TIGHT space.

How does one replace the serpentine belt on a 2004 toyota avalon?


Pull on the belt to see the tensioner pulley move put a wreanch on the nut holding the pulley on and pull the tensioner back as now the belt is loose slip it off the easiest pulley to grt to. work the belt off the reat of the pulleys and work the new one back on till you getr back to the easy one pull back on the tentioner and slip the belt over the easy pully letting loose of the tenstioner will keep the belt tight.

I replaced the serpentine belt on my 2002 accura rsx type s it sqeaks and seems loose is there any way to tighten it....tks


The tentioner should keep the belt at the right tention. Are you sure its the belt? I had some squeaking in my 05' RSX and replaced the Tentioner Pulley and the squeaking went away. Maybe this could be the same case. Hope this helps.

Serpentine belt on 96 saturn sc loose what could it be


Hello there:
Normally a serpentine belt will stay on tight untill it begins to strech out after it streches out to far the tention idler pulley cannot keep the belt tension tight any longer thus resulting in a belt either coming off or other things happening So what i would do is to first remove the serpentine belt and ensure that the tention idler pulley is working good make sure it does not just move freely than get a new belt and install now you should be ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

How do i switch the serpentine belt


Here's how to get a serpentine belt on or off (You'll need to do both). It's easy and doesn't require a prybar. Be sure to make note of the belt routing prior to taking the belt off.


On:
  • 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.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. 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
Off:
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. 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 off one of the pulley's (A/C or Alternator is best)
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
