Generally speaking, the belt diagrams do not tell you what the accessories are.
The water pump is in the middle, alternator is usually on the passenger side, and power steering pump is on the driver side.
There is at least one idler pulley that does not drive an accessory, and a tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight.
If you can describe the pulley or what it is attached to we might be able to tell you what the component is. We'll also need the engine size.

Alternator ford bronco

The best way to identify exactly which accessory or component is making noise is to use a mechanics stethescope with a pointed tip on it. If you do not have access to one, the next best thing is to remove the serpentine belt and feel each individual pulley for binding or play. Also try to spin each pulley fast enough to create the noise.

Why belt keeps shredding

usually due to a bad bearing, or from resistance due to a frozen or failing assemble, as in power steering, alternator, or an idler. The best way to determine is to remove the belt and check all pulleys for play and resistance.

How to change the belt on 1996 pontiac boneville

on the 3.8 liter v6, the pulley on the a/c compressor can be replaced if it is locked up (frozen) on the compressor. the question is what is actually locked up? if the a/c compressor is locked up but the a/c compressor pulley turns, then you need to disconnect the wire harness connecter that is on the a/c compressor pulley/clutch so you can run the defrost on the climate control. many GM cars will run the a/c when you switch the climate control to defrost especially in the winter so the a/c system stays lubed and does not lock up the a/c compressor from lack of use. you can then relace the belt without replacing the compressor pulley/clutch assembly. if the compressor pulley/clutch assembly is locked up, it will need to be replaced. i do not believe there is a way to route the belt bypassing the a/c compressor. you dont want the water pump turning in the wrong direction if you reroute the belt wrong or the engine will overheat. i hope this helps!

Power steering idler pulley frozen. How do I


So you have a frozen Idler Pulley. Usually, these are tensioner pulleys; where it moves up and down to tighten the belt (as i'm sure you know). There should be a bolt. Using a socket and rachet (long handled if possible; if not, use a ratchet with a bar, or an open end wrench for leverage. The bold should losen counter clockwise; standard (righy tighty, lefty loosy) ; It may take a bit of strength to break it loose, but it will come out. Once the bold is out, wiggle from side to side as you pull; may use a flat head screwdriver to help pry it off. Put the new one on, and tighten it up. NOTE: Depending on your belt direction of rotation, (and engine type) the pulley may want to move as you tighten it; Do this...tap the end of the racthet with a mallot or hammer once you have gotten it hand tight - it won't take much more after being hand tighten so don't beat up the ratchet trying to torque it on. As long as it's tight you can put the belt back on and be on your way. I sincerely hope this is useful information for you and helps you fix your car.
