    I posted this question too soon. Never-mind! to access the bolts to loosen the belt remove the right front wheel (block the car safely). you will see the bolt for the tension slot through the pulley from under the frame rail. (nice!) Also you may have to break the pivot bolt loos as well, it's the one lower and closer to the firewall.

How do you loosen a power steering tensioner on a 86 Chevy caprice?


I've got an 85 2.5 celebrity and am assuming that your 86 is similar. Most people might think this is a incorrect question, but I've spend hours trying to locate all the bolts to loosen. The alternator belt is straightforward. Loosen the alternator bolt in located in the slider portion and the pivot bolt (15mm on mine). The compressor belt is straightforward. Loosen the two compressor adjustment bolts in the slider slot and the loosen the pivot bolt. This belt will be hard to remove even with the compressor fully pushed down. Take some vitamins. The worse belt by far is the power steering belt. Loosen the pivot bolt on the bottom of the power steering "canister". There are two adjustment bolts to loosen from my memory. The one that is easy to find is on the engine side of the power steering canister. The other is hard to see but is located on the pulley side between two of the pulleys. It's also hard to get a wrench on. But, you've got to find and loosen this bolt. I cringe when this belt breaks. Good Luck!!

Is there a trick to loosening the power steering pump pulley to remove the belt? Thanks!


Loosen the pivot bolt. Most have an adjusting bolt and a pivot bolt where the PS pump can move back and forth a bit.

How to replace the power steering belt on a 4g13



ADJUSTMENT

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

How do I go about changing the small belt that goes to the power steering pump on 1998 Toyota Camry with the 2.2 engine


You need to remove the AC/Alternator belt first. There is a pivot bolt on the alternator that needs to be loosened. It faces toward the driver's side under the alternator. Then on top there is a long bolt that needs to be loosened. As it loosens push the alternator down and you will get enough slack to remove the belt.

For the power steering belt, remove the front passenger-side wheel. You will see a black cover(called a fender apron)- remove it. I believe the bolts are 10mm. You can now see the power steering pump- look at the side of the pump that faces the firewall. You will see another long bolt (similar to the AC/Alternator adjustment bolt), loosen it some and push the pump to get slack in the belt.

Hi, no need to raise the engine. you can use these steps to replace your pump.

To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:

1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.
