SOURCE: How to replace tensioner pulley on 2000 Dodge Neon

Make sure you locate the Serpentine Belt Routing Sticker before you proceed. If not make an excellent drawing and take a GOOD Picture. Do NOT try to just remember how it goes back on Should be a 15mm wrench to loosen tensioner to remove belt. Locate mounting bolts to tensioner and remove, replace with NEW tensioner tighten bolts then use wrench arc torque about 15 degrees should snug it down, reroute belt then using 15mm pull tensioner to either side of belt to install belt in correct route. Remove all tools and body parts from engine bay. Do not start engine if anyone is in the vicinity of engine bay. Belt may fly off if you did not do it right and cause all kinds of shrapnell, if it doesn't fly off, visually inspect belt before starting and after, I would suggest being very careful before during and after starting to insure safety.

SOURCE: how to replace belt tension pulley for dodge neon 2002

The power steering and A/C belt is tensioned by a tensioner pulley. Mine went bad and was "screaming" I thought it was the power steering pump and I replaced it only to find that it wasn't the problem. I couldn't find any bolts and deemed it too much of a problem for me to replace at home. The shop had to drop the engine and transaxle assembly from the engine bay in order to get enough room to replace the pulley. The problem with many FWD cars is having enough room to work so if you have to replace it, the engine has to move because you only have about two inches of room otherwise.

You have to remove the whole bracket that the tensioner assembly is attached to then you can get at the bolts that holed the tensioner and pulley together to service. Have fun.

Check to see if you enough Steering Fluid. If the fluid was recently flushed, make sure they put right kind of fluid. I once had my fluid replace and they topped it with the wrong spec fluid. Had to reflush and put the correct fluid. Belt will usually make noise, not cause the steering to stiffen up. Hope this helps, let us know if a better answer comes along.

What is the best way to replace the tensioner pulley on a 2005 neon? i have the tool to remove the power stearing pully. is there also a tool for the tensioner pully? will i have to pull the motor?


No you will not have to pull the motor. The pulley is held on with a standard bolt. However, if the pulley bearing is worn, I would suggest replacing the entire tensioner. The spring inside gets weak over time. It won't cost all that much more for the whole tensioner (it includes a new pulley already installed) and it will prevent a problem in the future.

2003 neon - when i shift it's "puttering" almost


who knows what your car needs. but if you have anywhere near 90k miles or if you know it has never been replaced. replace the timing belt, tensioner and water pump ASAP. If it breaks, the engine is trashed and a Neon isnt going to be worth a new engine.

2003 DODGE NEON 2.0L CAN I JUST REPLACE TENSIONER PULLY ON A/C OR DO I HAVE TO REPLACE WHOLE THING


I'd have to guess no, due to the fact that if the pulley is gone, the tension is probably weak by now too, and most parts places wouldn't stock both unless there was a big demand for the pulley only, and most mechanics would not take the chance. With that said, I do remember doing just that in the earlier years of the tensioners. I'd give the big parts stores a call & see if they stock them or could get one, then you'll know.

The tension release pulley, located just below and in front of alternator, has a 1-2 slot in the center of pulley. Insert the 1-2 inch breaker bar in middle of tension pulley and pull up, tension will be released. I hope this helps. Don,t forget to rate my answer, thanks.
