SOURCE: Serpentine belt too tight to install

I had the same problem when trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2001 Trooper. The Maintenance book was very vague and I couldn't tell exactly how the tension was taken off the belt, but it did clearly identify the tensioner pulley. I first removed the pulley and looked for some kind of slot that would give me the adjustment I needed, but no slotted adjustment is present on the 01 Trooper. I had to do some research so I pulled of the tensioner assembly and found that there is a spring coil which keeps tension on the belt constant, and eliminates any belt alignment problems.

The Litens style tensioner uses a spring to apply pressure towards the serpentine belt. The way to relax the spring is to use your 14mm socket and ratchet and force the pulley down by driving the pulley nut in the clockwise direction. This forces the spring to compress and the pulley to drop giving the needed clearance to get your new belt in place.

SOURCE: How to loosen alternator tension on a 2003 Lancer

I have not seen this vehicle but, the center bolt or nut that holds the tensioner to the block is backed off two turns first.
Then the adustment bolt (most are accesed from under the vehicle) can be adjusted to give enough slack to install the new belt.
If this is still too tight, remove one of the two or two of the three bolts that mount the Alternator to allow for another 1/8" and install the belt.
Then remount the Alternator.
Then readjust the tension bolt.
Finish with the bolt or nut that mounts the tensionor to the block.
good luck.

  2. Loosen the tension pulley locknut.
  3. Rotate the adjusting bolt to decrease the belt tension.
  4. Remove the drive belt from the engine.
To install:
  1. Position the replacement belt around the pulleys, making sure the belt routing is correct.
  2. Adjust the belt by rotating the adjusting bolt until the correct tension is reached. Refer to the procedure earlier in this section for belt adjustment.
  3. Once the desired tension is reached, secure the locknut. Recheck the belt tension.
  4. After the belt is installed and adjusted properly, tighten the locknut to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

SOURCE: Bolt for belt tensioner pulley won't budge like

the tensioners are spring loaded usually, it should have a half inch square hole in the front which you put a socket breaker bar into and pull it down to take the tension off the belt
not sure if yours will be the same but it should be similar
hope this helps

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    How do i get the serpentine belt off a 2003 mitsubishi outlander


    To get this off, there are two ways:

    1. Loosen the alternator, and pull it back until the tension is released.

    2. There will be between the various pully's (belt runs around) a tensioner. This is holds the belt tight. With a rachet and socket, pull (push) the tensioner until the belt has slack - pull one part of the belt off (any pully) and release the tensioner back to it's position. (It will go further than when the belt was on - this is normal.

    When installing the new belt, if using the tensioner, the belt will need to be placed on the tensioner last - get the belt around all other pully's in it's correct configuration, then, pull back (push) tensioner *(while holding the belt tight with other hand, and ready to be pushed over tensioner) and slide belt into place over it.

    Also note: a serpentine belt will only go on one way (grooved side down).

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    How to tighten my 306 dt 98 fan belt


    you need to take off the drivers front wheel and plastic cover infront of the engine.
    then you need to crack off two allen key type bolts holding the braket and tensioner pully in place, that is positioned just right of the crankshaft pully. Once the whole unit is slack you have to loosen the adjuster that is visible underneath the tensioner braket to take the tension off the belt. Once the belt is loose enough take it off and reverse process avoiding overtightening new belt. [It needs a little give to avoid damging bearings in the pully]

    Need to change multi belt on pug 406


    depending on the year the alternator can have a 13 mm clamp bolt by the 10 mm adjusting bolt, and you need to loosen a 21mm bolt at the top, newer models have a sprung tensioner with a 19 or 21mm square or hex plug sticking out, this will bear an idler wheel, the gap is tight and hard to see what is going on, the spring is v strong and needs a long spanner. Assuming you are in the UK the library will get a manual in to order, keep it clean or they charge you.

    Describe your 2005 Chevrolet Optra Problem How to change serpentine belt tensioner?


    Remove the air filter housing and air hose. Set aside
    Pull the 15mm bolt on the tensioner counterclockwise (towards front of car) and hold it there to loosen tension, and remove the serpentine belt.
    With your 15mm wrench, unbolt the belt tensioner and remove.
    Replace with new tensioner
    Put serpentine belt back on.
    Very easy! Be careful when releasing tension, becase if you let go of the wrench it will fly back and could hurt you.

    If you have a book picture your are screwed. You do have a tensioner but it is between air con and powersteering pullys. In front from under you can put 15mm wrenchopend with a nother for leverage pull center bolt down to release tension. simple.
