You will need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. The Belt Tensioner has a Large Pulley with a Bolt in the Middle above a Smaller Pulley that is Holding Tension on the Belt. Get a Wratchet and Socket that will fit the Bolt in the Large Pulley. You will also need a Cheater Bar for the Wratchet Handle. Turn the Bolt with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. It will Lower the Smaller Pulley and you will be able to Remove the Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

there is a diagram somewhere under the hood that gives you belt routing and where the tensioner is and which way it swings to take belt off. sometimes its a 15mm and the longer the wrench the easier it is to swing it.

How do you replace a serpetine belt on a 2002 chevy tahoe


My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.


Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram for the 2002 Chevy Tahoe for your specific engine and options (AC/No AC etc.). It has other additonal diagrams for your future use. It also has some diagrams on how to rotate/move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm to loosen and remove the Belt.

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT OR OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating it\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.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt:
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.


Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Serpentine belt on 1992 dakota


You don't mention which engine you have in your '92 Dakota, but it's likely the 3.3L and if so, here's the diagram. Even if your engine is not the 3.3L the principals for replacing the belt are the same.

Get a serpentine belt tension release tool (local parts store) and use it to take the tension wheel away from the belt, which will make it loose enough to remove by simply pulling it off one of the pulleys (the alternator will be easiest) and then wiggle it out of the engine bay. The tool should come with a selection of heads for the different variations of tensioner arms/bolts. Once the belt is removed, replacing it is the reverse process.

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.
