Diesel Serpentine Belt

Seems there is a pulley on the drivers side that is not used. Belt fits fine if bypassed. Loner belt is too long when pulley is used.
Will it hurt to bypass the pulley.

I have never heard of a spare pulley on an engine. If everything is working, (alternator, water pump, power steering, AC compressor ) then I guess I would not worry about it. The only other thing could be that some one placed a belt on the truck just to get it by until they could get a correct belt to fit. They are routed on top and below pulleys and it is possible to skip a pulley temporarily if you get a smaller one to get you by until the correct one can be located. Good luck

SERPENTINE BELT


I had a similar problem that turned out to be some bad rubber bushings on the alternator mounting bolt. The alternator would shift from side to side causing misalignment with the serpentine belt. To check this, you will need to remove the serpentine belt and take a close look at those bushings. If they are original equipment, I would change them out. In my case, everything lined up fine, but with the engine running, the alternator would shift position and shred the serpentine belt. Good luck.

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

How to install a serpentine belt on a 1994 mercury grand marquis it seems that i can get a 3/8 or 1/2in ratchet to move tensioner


It is sometimes pretty tough getting it to move.
Make sure you are Rotating it the correct way.
Do you have a Breaker Bar or a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool. Stores like Harbor Freight and even some Auto Parts Stores have these. Some of the auto parts stores have these for rent (for free with a refundable deposit).
I like and use weekly the Serpentine Tool from Harbor Freight (Item #66344-0VGA- $20). It is narrow enough to fit in most tight spots. The main bar has a 3/8-in fitting, and the extension bar can connect to this with a 1/2-in fitting.
The idea is to have more leverage. The Ratchet and/or Wrench sometimes does not provide that leverage needed.

When installing follow the below guidelines. DO NOT try to put the Belt on the Tensioner last.

"HOW TO":
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 (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) 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.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Hello. I am having constant problems with my 1997 chevy cavalier serpentine belt. My old wrecked belt was working fine but when it started wearing too thin i got a new one. As soon as the new one was put...


has anyone checked the tensioner and pulley.th etensioner should operate smooth and without any side play. if the belt is too long, the tensioner will not be able to pull out the "slack" in the belt. the tensioner will have a mark of where it should be with the correct length belt on it.

On a 2001 saab 93 turbo can can you bypass the ac compressor or is there a bypass pulley


You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.

How to reattach serpentine belt on 1999 saab 9-3


The Saab accessory drive (serpentine) belt is self-tensioning by means of a tensioning pulley. Excessive play means that the current belt is spent and must be replaced. It is a very good idea to replace the idler pulley above the tensioner pulley at this time as the bearings fail over time. You can get an aftermarket pulley of machined billet aluminum construction with a repalceable bearing race from Wazee Pulleys. This pulley is superior to the stock one in just about every conceivable way.
To remove the belt you will need a 1/2 inch socket extension bar that will fit exactly in the top of the tensioning pulley housing and a six mm allen key which you will use to lock the tensioner assembly into this position relaxing the belt. This site shows the proper routing of the stock belt and the routing procedure to bypass the highly failure prone center idler pulley if your car has that (yours should not), as well as the procedure to remove and fit a new belt. Note, the belts shown on this site are for the short-belt modification only. See also, this site for additional information. Another diagram is here with part numbers for the pulleys and the belt.
To remove the belt, you will find it best to remove the airbox to allow you more room at the top end to work. Also, jack up the car and remove the passenger wheel to give you access down below.
