Replace power steering belt


You should have a serpentine belt (one continuous multi-grooved belt) on that model in which case the easiest way is to get (or borrow) the special tool (a long bar with a place to install a socket) to back the tensioner off enough to slip the belt off one of the pulleys. Install in the reverse order using the wrench back the tensioner pulley back enough to get the belt over the last pulley then release the tensioner - it will automatically provide the proper tension. If it a single V-belt then look for a bolt or bolts you can loosen and slide the power steering pump toward the motor and remove the old belt then install the new one, carefully pry the pump back into place and tighten the bolt(s). This should work on most vehicles.

How do I loosen the pully for the serpentine belt


>>> NOTE<<< It is not necessary to adjust belt tension on the 3.7L or 4.7L engines., THE PROCEDURE FOR DRIVE BELT REMOVAL IS SIMPLE, USING A 15MM,17mm,or 18mm Wrench Get to the Center Bolt on the Tentioner Pulley, ( the SMOOTH NON-GROOVED Pulley) and turn to the Right and Left The Direction you feel the Tentioner SPRING Fight Against you will be what you Want they VARIE in Terms of Adjustment Loosening the Belt for Removal, Simply Turn it Untill Drive Belt is Loose Enough to Remove


On 3.7L/4.7L engines, the tensioner is equipped with an indexing tang on back of tensioner and an indexing stop on tensioner housing. If a new belt is being installed, tang must be within approximately 24 mm (.94 inches) of indexing stop. Belt is considered new if it has been used 15 minutes or less.
If the above specification cannot be met, check for:
  • The wrong belt being installed (incorrect length/ width)
  • Worn bearings on an engine accessory (A/C compressor, power steering pump, water pump, idler pulley or generator)
  • A pulley on an engine accessory being loose
  • Misalignment of an engine accessory
  • Belt incorrectly routed.

I am Confident this WILL Help you to Conduct the BELT REMOVAL Procedure.

Change serpentine belt on 06 sienna


  1. 1 Check to ensure the Sienna's engine is cold, then make sure the Sienna is in park, the ignition is in the off position and the key is removed from the ignition to prevent any possibility of the engine engaging during the serpentine belt replacement.
  2. 2 Open the hood and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram sticker on the side of the engine casing. Study it for a moment before removing the existing belt. It is essential the new belt be installed exactly as the diagram indicates.
  3. 3 Find the tensioner pulley, the main pulley that controls the serpentine belt, and fit a 1/2-inch socket wrench over the self-tensioner on the outside of the pulley.
  4. 4 Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt, then remove the belt.
  5. 5 Compare the old serpentine belt with the new, replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside. Be certain the replacement belt is the right part.
  6. 6 Fit the new belt on to each pulley according to the serpentine belt routing diagram on the manufacturer's sticker, or according to the drawing made prior to removing the old belt. Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.
  7. 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to ease back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
  8. 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

Replace serpentine belt on 1992 dodge grand


Click on the following free direct Link.
It has the correct Belt Diagrams for your 1992 Dodge Grand Caravan wirh either the 3.0L SOHC V6 or the 3.3L V6.

Included on the Diagrams are the Instructions on "Rotating" the Automatic Tensioner. See Below for additional Instructions to make your job easier.

"HOW TO": I professionally prefer the Serpentine Tensioner Tool.
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s).
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (located on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening located on the Tensioner Arm) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

Where is the pully release on1991 dodge stealth


The 6g72 has 3 belts. the Alternator belt is loosened by a horizontal bolt on the tensional pulley just to the left of the crank pulley. it will move the pulley down and loosen the tension. the power steering belt is loosened by a 14mm bolt on a bracket up and to the left of the crank pulley its a very unique bolt not hard to spot. the Timing belt is loosened by loosening a bolt on the tensioner pulley (it will have 2 small holes on it and will be above and left of crank pulley and right of the hydralic tensioner. contact me at spammyiam@aol.com if you need pictures.
