I cannot install the power steering belts. Do you have to remove the pulley to install the belts?


no - no need to remove the pully. If you are certain you have the correct size belt, there should be a tensioner on the power steering pump -- or else perhaps it is on whatever else the power steering belt also is hooked into & provides power to..

Need to know how to adjust serpentine belt, please show diagram. 6 cyl engine.


Really don't need a diagram. Loosen the slide bolts on the power steering pump. loosen or tighten the pump by turning the jack screw (long transverse bolt) under the pump. Once the belt is tightened up, lock down the slide bolts and you are finished.

Belt problem after replacing power steering pump and pully 98ram


If the tensioner can be moved by hand the lock down bolt is not doing its job. Try to tighten the bolt with the belt pulled tight and then release. If the belt loosens the bolt is not working as it should. Make sure theres a lock washer (split lock washer) between the bolt head and the post.

My serpintine fan belt came off as I started the motor; w/o air conditioner, but it does have power steering- the new belt seems to be too long, even though I had brought in the old one and followed the...


All it takes is for one part of the belt to be in the wrong position for it to appear to be too long. Check the diagram again. There is often a diagram in the owner manual as well as under the hood.

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.

Belt inst


For the 3.0L Vulcan, you have a tensioner that is located just below the power steering pully. Use a 15mm wrench or the 15mm shallow well socket that comes in a Serpentine Belt tool to push the tensioner toward the rear of the engine compartment. Take the old belt off and route the new belt. The belt begins at the crankshaft pully, goes under and around the a/c compressor, up around the power steering pump, around (with the flat edge) the idler pully, around the alternator, the flat edge then sits against the tensioner and back around to the water pump pully. You should have a belt routing diagram on the underside of the hood just above the serpentine pully assembly.

Removing power steering pump


To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
  2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
  3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
  4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
  5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
  6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
  7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
  8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.
