SOURCE: How do I install alt. belt on 2005 scion xb?

I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?


I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

How do i change wheel hub assembly on scion xb?


You need an impact wrench and large socket to get the spindle nut off, also some use star pattern bolts to hold on the hub. Will require a torque wrench also for re install. Some models require separating the ball joints too, a spreader is helpful. Not a job for anyone without good tools and a good bit of mechanic experience.

2005 xb squeals when I start the car then fades


I'm not sure where these other guys live but their solutions are nonsense. Coolant leaks? Fuel pumps? Dead or dying batteries? I too drive a 05 Scion xB and have had squeak issues. These squeaks and squeals are caused by one or both of the serpentine belts. If not the belts then the pulley's associated with the belts. One of the belts drives the power steering and the other operates the Alternator, Water Pump and AC Compressor.
Does your car squeak when you have the AC turned on and the fan running fairly fast?
Do you hear a rough kind of noise when you're turning the wheel? If it's either or those two then I'd check your belts.
But still to be on the safe side I'd bring it to a mechanic and have them check the belts for glazing or wear then go from there. If you can put belts on yourself they will run you about $40 for the pair. Most garages charge an arm and a leg for them and then another appendage to install them.

Best of luck

When idling, the engine rattles

Don't believe everything you hear! Too many Xperts out there! Ok, here's the deal. I have a Scion 2005 xb and a 2006 xb. To set up the idle, just look near the front of your engine close to the radiator fan. As you are facing the car with the hood up, near the right side of the engine, you should see the thin metal wire that gives your car gas when you depress the gas pedal. Have someone press the gas pedal quickly and you will see it move(even if the engine is off). Don't let them hold it down! Just a quick press/release or two. (You can also do this yourself if necessary, by pushing the small plastic wheel the cable rides on). Ok, after you locate the wire and the round plastic piece, locate the small nut that has a small "allen wrench" type screw in the center of it. You may see a small dot of yellow paint from the factory which shows the original location of the screw. FIRST, with a 5/16 or (equivalent millimeter) wrench, loosen the nut only slightly. SECOND, with a very small #2 size allen wrench, slightly TIGHTEN the screw until the rough idle smooths out(about 10 or 11 rpm's on the gauge inside on your odometer). DONE! Takes about 5 minutes and saves $$$ and time at the dealer!
You should have someone running the car to do this...BUT for safety reasons, be very careful not to get your hands near the fan which WILL PROBABLY COME ON!!!! And don't let someone depress and release the gas pedal while your hands are near the wire! You only need to tighten the allen screw about a half turn. After adjusting, give a quick depress of the gas pedal again to make sure it adjusts properly and seats. Remember, the higher you set the idle, the more gas you use and the quicker you overheat. So, set it at the very minimum that takes out the roughness(between 9 & 10 rpm's is ideal). Good luck, Ricko, New Smyrna Beach, FL
