Look under the dirt on your rad support, or on the under side of your hood. There is usually a drawing of the belt sequence there.If not, it may be right on the box of the new belt you buy. Is it a V6? V8? You will have to loosen or take off the outside belt and replace the inside one. Good luck and cheers from Nova Scotia

How to remove my power steering pump


hope this one help http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/maintenance/3322636
This instructable is designed into four main parts. Here's the outline:

1) Gather the materials
-- Instructable step 1 - This includes tools, a new pump, fluids, etc.
2) Remove the leaking pump
-- Instructable step 2 - Drain the Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 3 - Remove accessories from Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 4 - Remove the pulley and bolts
-- Instructable step 5 - Remove power steering pump
3) Install the new pump
-- Instructable step 6 - Place the new power steering pump
-- Instructable step 7 - Press on the power steering pump pulley
-- Instructable step 8 - Align the pulley and attach the belts
-- Instructable step 9 - Flush and fill the power steering system
4) Cleanup
-- Instructable step 10 - Cleanup

You'll need some tools to complete this task. Before you start, gather the necessary equipment -- you will not be able to use the car once you start the replacement! It is always a good idea to have a friend on call, or a second car available.

Equipment list:

  • Power Steering pump (to replace defective pump)
  • Two (2) quarts power steering fluid or appropriate ATF (to flush and fill). More than 2 quarts if flushing the rack is desired.
  • Power Steering Pulley Puller set (to remove and attach the pulley). Some auto parts stores will loan the tool sets.
  • Socket set.
  • Open end wrench set (for use with puller set).
  • Leverage pipe or extension bar (in case the pulley is hardened on the spindle).
  • Drain pan (to drain & flush power steering system).
  • Wheel bearing grease for sliding pulley on the pump hub.
  • 2' wood 1x2 for assistance with aligning the pulleys. Any straight tool will work fine -- a level, metal rod, wood, whatever.

How do you remove a broken bolt on the timimg belt tensioner pulley for a 2001 300m crysler


!st remove the tensioner if it is still bolted in place by second bolt. Easy outs are high tensile you will not drill through it. You may have to carefully try to chisel it out. If you can get it out try a left handed drill bit if you have room to drill. If it won't come you will probably have to re drill & tap a new thread & use oversize bolt

Tiburon timing belt broke, replaced, won't start


Did you make sure you set cam & crank timing ? If the belt is off one tooth it will cause this. Recheck belt timing first.

Replacing serpentine belt on 1994 plymouth voyager


There is one pulley(tension pulley) that your belt goes around that just has a spring. If you're confused about which pulley this one is, start the engine, it's the pulley that wiggles with the belt rather than just turning. It is also the only pulley that has a hex(bolt head) in the middle. It usually takes either a 15mm or 9\16 wrench. It will move only one way that gives slack in the belt, up or down. Getting the belt off is the easy part, getting it on will require some patience, when it's on right, it will be difficult to get the new belt on because it hasn't stretched out from heat and wear yet. Just be patient, and persistent, you'll get it. And watch your knuckles, a good fitting wrench, seated fully will help with this. Also, if the wrench gets in the way, put the belt on the tensioner pulley, and when you put slack in the belt, use an easier to get to pulley as the one you put the belt on with.

Tensioner pulley broke


Need to get a new or used one for replacement. It's an easy fix. Also check your belt. You might need a new one. And before you put belt on, check all your pulleys that belt runs for proper (free-wheeling) operation. If another pulley froze up, it could cause your tensioner to malfunction.

Serpentine belt keeps coming off. Everything is tight, replaced tensioner pulley. still no luck......any ideas?


Check that the Crank Pulley (damper) hasn't worn &
moved in or out.

I personally have seen alot of tough belt issues, that in
some cases took years to figure out,but never a belt that
came off ,other than several the last couple of days, on this

How do you replace serpentine belt?


Hi,
This is a simple technical task,just ensure you follow the instructions below carefully;

STEP 1 Open the hood and locate the accessory belt diagram, which shows the routing of the belt in the engine.

STEP 2. Turn the tensioner pulley to the right by placing a 15-mm wrench on the bolt in the middle of the tensioner and rotating the entire pulley. The tensioner pulley is located in the middle of the power steering pump and the crankshaft, and across from the water pump.


STEP 3 Pull the belt off one of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner back into its original position.

NOTE;The tensioner pulley is spring loaded. If it snaps back into place, you stand the risk damaging the pulley.

STEP 4 Remove the old belt from the other pulleys and discard it.


STEP 5 Carefully Wrap the replacement serpentine belt around all but one of the pulleys using the belt diagram as a guide. Choose a pulley that is easy to access, i will suggest the power steering or tensioner pulley.

STEP 6 Hold the belt tight and rotate the tensioner pulley to the right.



STEP 7 Gently Slide the belt around the open pulley and move the tensioner pulley back into position.

FINAL STEP Ensure that the belt is properly wrapped around all of the pulleys. The belt sits in the middle of the groove of the pulley when properly installed.

Problem solved,good luck....

Engine made a weird noise when i started it & then the power steeing did not work & the battery light came on


the cerpenteen belt that runs the fan, powersteering pump, alternator(battery charger), and water pump broke. if the belt just broke from being old, just replace it. but check all of the pullys to make sure they spin relitivly easy. if you find one that dosen't spin easily, it could need replaced too.
