    Thanks. I tried that to no avail. Never had this much problem before. Temperature outside is 40 degrees F. Could this be a problem

    sometimes you gotta pick a smaller pulley , non lipped to be the last pulley to go over . don't pick a large pulley with lip for last , tensioner or idler is good choice for last .

Yes the cold temps will shrink the belt. But usually there is enough extra to work with......If you are sure the belt is routed properly (and it's easy to mess it up I've been doing this kinda stuff for 25 years and i still get it wrong sometimes) You can try to heat the belt in the house,put it near a heater or soak it in really hot water and try to get it on fast enough that it will stay slightly stretched for long enough. other than that I would inquire at your local part store about a slightly longer one or maybe your belt came in the wrong package and is too short for your vehicle
Good luck and thanks for choosing FIX YA!

Change serpentine belt on 06 sienna


  1. 1 Check to ensure the Sienna's engine is cold, then make sure the Sienna is in park, the ignition is in the off position and the key is removed from the ignition to prevent any possibility of the engine engaging during the serpentine belt replacement.
  2. 2 Open the hood and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram sticker on the side of the engine casing. Study it for a moment before removing the existing belt. It is essential the new belt be installed exactly as the diagram indicates.
  3. 3 Find the tensioner pulley, the main pulley that controls the serpentine belt, and fit a 1/2-inch socket wrench over the self-tensioner on the outside of the pulley.
  4. 4 Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt, then remove the belt.
  5. 5 Compare the old serpentine belt with the new, replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside. Be certain the replacement belt is the right part.
  6. 6 Fit the new belt on to each pulley according to the serpentine belt routing diagram on the manufacturer's sticker, or according to the drawing made prior to removing the old belt. Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.
  7. 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to ease back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
  8. 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

How to install a serpentine belt on a 1994 mercury grand marquis it seems that i can get a 3/8 or 1/2in ratchet to move tensioner


It is sometimes pretty tough getting it to move.
Make sure you are Rotating it the correct way.
Do you have a Breaker Bar or a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool. Stores like Harbor Freight and even some Auto Parts Stores have these. Some of the auto parts stores have these for rent (for free with a refundable deposit).
I like and use weekly the Serpentine Tool from Harbor Freight (Item #66344-0VGA- $20). It is narrow enough to fit in most tight spots. The main bar has a 3/8-in fitting, and the extension bar can connect to this with a 1/2-in fitting.
The idea is to have more leverage. The Ratchet and/or Wrench sometimes does not provide that leverage needed.

When installing follow the below guidelines. DO NOT try to put the Belt on the Tensioner last.

"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s).
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

I can't get the serpentine belt on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler


Before installing the new belt, rotate the tensioner pulley until it's in it's "free arm" position. This will enable you to get the belt routed around the other pulleys saving the tensioner pulley for last. Once on, rotate the belt until the tensioner pulley takes up slack. It should lock into place once the engine is started. Best of luck and please post back either with any questions or to rate this solution. Thank you.

Removing old serpentine belt


Hi alin,

No prybar necessary.
  • 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.
  • 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
