Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
We have loosened the tensioner but are have problems putting new belt back on my chevy trailblazer 2007 lt. we dont seem to have enough slack even with the tensioner pushed as far as it goes. is there a special tool we can use to pull the last ring around or some other trick we are not doing. we do have the right belt(was same size of old one)
You don't "loosen" the tensioner... DO NOT spray anything on your belts or pulleys... other than some water. Many fluids will attract dirt and give you more problems in the long run... there shoud be square hole on the tension like that on the end of socket.... Get a breaker bar... (bascially a ratchet without the ratchet part and usually at least 12" long) put into the hole and pull in a direction that will allow you to put the belt on and then slowly release. If you don't have a breaker bar you can use a ratchet however there is a chance you can break it under the force. Also you will most likelly need a cheater bar (nothing more than a hollow pipe to fit around the ratchet handle to help extend it 12 or more inches...) to give you the leverage needed to pull that tensioner... hope this helps...

Make sure that you have the ribbed part of the belt around all of the pulleys with grooves and leave the smooth tensioner pulley last. Make sure your belt is all the way on the pulleys, you should now be able to slip the belt on this way. You can spray a small amount of WD40 on the pulley to help the belt slide on. All of this assuming that you are correct and have the right belt. Good luck
