Drive belt routing diagram w reg ford focus


Somewhere under the hood, usually on the fan shroud or near the radiator, there should be a sticker with a diagram of the belt routing, 2001 may even be on the hood. On this diagram it will show a tensioner pulley and idler pulley and the approximate location. Most Fords use a 15mm or 16mm bolt on the tensioner, this is where you put a wrench to rotate the tensioner and remove the belt. When you turn the tensioner bolt turn towards the front of the car, there will be a lot of tension so pull hard.

Also Dayco.com offers a free online comprehensive serpentine belt reference tool - including routing diagrams and tensioner information.

The belt has tension applied to it from an idler pulley arm. you need to release tension by using a socket and ratchet on the nut on the idler pulley. Release tesion and slide belt off . Make sure you have the diagram for serpentine belt. it is usualy under the hood. If not make a diagram yorself before removing belt.

How do u change a frive belt on a 2002 dodge ram


There is usually a diagram under the hood to show you the routing of the belt or you can get an auto parts to give you a diagram. The drive belt runs on what is called a tensioner and this tensioner has a bolt on front of it that you place a socket or specialized tool on. Pull or push the bolt and the spring in the tensioner will move either up or down allowing you to remove the belt and or replace the belt. Hope this helped

How to change a 1996 chevrolet 1500 pu fan belt


this is done by locating the spring loaded tensioner and taking a 3/8" ratchet and pushing. it is only spring loaded. make sure you follow the routing diagram or if one is not handy under the hood, draw it out as to not forget. it ONLY goes on one way. make sure also that the writing on the belt, you can read it normally without having to stand on the engine. if you dont these belts have the potential to squeek like a bad pulley or belt.

2001 suburban. how to change a/c belt


2001 Suburbans generally have two belts. The primary drive belt and the A/C compressor belt. You must first remove the primary drive belt before removing the A/C belt. They are both kept in place with a tensioner. A standard 3/8 rachet will help give you the leverage to disengage the tensioner and remove the belt. Replace in reverse order.

Changing ac compressor belt


This should be a serpentine belt that is held in place with a spring loaded belt tensioner. There shold be a label under the hood showing the correct belt orientation. You need to have a long open end wrench or box wrench tentioner forward, addition tention to it to allow the belt to be slipped over one or the other pullys, once this is done, the belt should be tight. If it is over all the pullys and still loose, you either have the wrong belt or the tensioner is bad.

Belt


on a 2000, it should be a serptine belt. One belt for everything. First, look at how belt runs, remember. There also should be a diagram under the hood for refernce. Find the belt tensioner, put wrench on and remove tension while your doing that remove a belt from one pulley. Then slip old belt off all others. Instaliton is reverse of what I just stated. Be sure that the belt is sitting correctly on every pully. There are several small groves on belt that if they are't lined up, will cause a shorter life span of the belt.

2003 Jetta tdi serpentine belt


hi doug
im dave
there should be a diagram for the belt somewhere under the hood of your car usually adjacent to the emission (VECI) label near the rad the belt or on the actual hood
the tensioner is automatic adjusting. using a ratchet and the proper size socket rotate the tensioner (usually anticlockwise but youll be able to tell as you turn it) to release tension and slip the belt off of the alternator pulley. be careful not to let go of the tensioner while slipping the belt off or you will hurt your fingers!
