SOURCE: how to change a serpentine belt

You sent the additional question in the Solution portion of the other original posting...I just happened to stumble upon it when you rated me a "2" out of "4" on the original Posting/Question. A "2" is not good for my 94% Rating!
As far as step-by-step:
The Tensioner Pulleys have two (2) types:
1. If it has an Adjustment Nut located near it: Loosen (counterclockwise) the nut. You will see the Pulley and Belt moving, loosening the belt.
2. The other type of Tensioner is an Automatic Tensioner. The standard rule with these is to move the Tensioner Pulley (it has a strong spring keeping it in place) in the direction of:
(a) Away from the Belt (contact with the Pulley portion).
(b) Towards the open area of the Pulley = towards the direction where the Belt is not iin contact with the Pulley.

Again: Let me know if this helped you, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com! And please don't use a "2". And yes you may change your original Rating from 2 to 4 if you wish....

SOURCE: How much does it cost

Not much but what happened to the engine when it broke is a lot. Doesn't always destroy a motor but often bends and warps thing. The cost of the new timing belt should be the least of your worries.

Replace all drive belts


The number on the back of the belts will tell you how long the belt is when you get new ones. You'll have to loosen the alternator bolts for one, the power steering pump for another and the AC compressor for the other one.

At what mileage should the timing belt on my kia sorento 2005 be changed?


the factory calls for every 60,000 miles, do not go over this mileage, if the belt breaks the valves will hit the pistions and u have a huge and expensive repair.

Replacing drive belt for Kia Sorento


You have three belts on your sorento
one for the A/C
one for power steering
And one for the alternator

to remover the power steering and alternator you need to loosen the tensioner center nut, then loosen the tensioner adjuster bolt. its easier to explain with a diagram.
to remover the alternator belt, you have to do that from under the car, which means removing the lower engine cover. the same methods applies to the alternator belt, loosen the tension centre nut, then loosen the adjuster bolt.

by they way, sorentos with the new 3.8 engine have only one belt, thats 2007 and up.
have fun
