SOURCE: change idler pulley

It's a T-40 size, but I removed the bolt by first removing the bracket holding the pulley--I assume you're talking about the alternator idler pulley, the one right below the alternator. The bracket is held in place by three 14 mm bolts which I was able to reach from the top of the engine (after removing the black plastic air tube). I then put the bracket in a vise and "buzzed" off the 14 mm nut using an electric impact wrench ($30 +/- from Heartland of America). Be careful when putting the nut back on--the impact wrench will likely be too much torque!

SOURCE: my idler pulley is making a squeaky light grinding niose.

belt dressing / new belt / but the grinding means the idler puller is going to grenade soon and you wont have any belt on it so go buy a new idler and change it right away or you risk the engine overheating by not turning the water pump .if it's grinding greasing the old one wont do much help .damage is already done in the bearing .and there sealed bearings . you just throw away the old 1.

My idler pulley on my 96 ford explorer is grinding on the bracket that holds it in place and creating a loud grinding noise, what steps would I use to resolve it??


change the idler pulley . its held on by a bolt in the center of the pulley. the bearings are sealed so you can't grease them. but first you have to take the tension off the serpintine belt. that is also another pulley located below the idler.don't know what size bolt on a ford but use a long wrench grab the bolt on the tensioner push to the right like you were tightening it. that will release the tension on the belt. don't take the belt all the way off just off the idler pulley. change the pulley and do tha same to reinstall the serpintine belt. if the belt comes all thr way off under the hood or on the front around the top of the radiator there will be a schematic that shows you how the belt should go around everything. let me know what happens. sometimes the tensioner pulley will grind also so be sure your changing the right pulley

Locate the idler pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley. The idler pulley bolts to the idler arm. The idler pulley is replaced with the arm because they are sold as one unit.

  • 2 Place a 3/8-inch ratchet driver into the square hole on the face of the idler pulley and pull up on the handle. This releases tension on the Sonoma's serpentine belt. Pull the belt off the idler pulley, lower and remove the ratchet handle.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the idler arm to the engine block using a socket and ratchet, and discard the old idler arm.
  • 4 Place the new idler arm against the engine block and secure it using the socket and ratchet.
  • 5 Put the ratchet driver into the square hole on the new idler pulley, pull up on the handle and place the serpentine belt over the pulley.
  • 6 Lower and remove the ratchet handle.

    How to change a idler pulley


    1st , you will have to use a 13-15" metric size socket, with a 3/8 drive ratchet, or suitable size wrench, to hold back onto the tensioner to release the serpentine belt, once this is done, then take the appropiate size socket and ratchet and remove the bolt that holds the idler pulley to the engine, once the pulley is removed, then install the new one , tighten it good , and then route the serpentine belt, and then hold back on the tensioner , while getting belt in postion , for tensioner to hold it, and once the belt is in postion, then release the tensioner onto the belt, and make sure that the belt is evenly and correctly routed , before starrting up the engine.

    How to put on serpentine belt


    Hi,

    The tools required are:
    1/2-inch drive ratchet
    2 - 1/2-inch drive 8-inch extensions
    1/2-inch drive socket set

    Please follow these steps to replace the serpentine belt on your 1999 Chrysler 300M:

    1. Open the hood and prop it in place.

    2. Locate the serpentine belt adjustable idler pulley on the front of the engine. This adjustable idler pulley will be closest to the top of the engine. Position a metric socket onto the ratchet and loosen the bolt in the center of the serpentine belt idler pulley.

    3. Now please loosen the push bolt on the side of the idler pulley. It is a 15mm size and the push bolt on the side of the tensioner is 13mm. Pull off the old belt.

    4. Loosen the tensioner pulley for the AC belt. The same steps need to be followed for this as well.

    5. Next slip the AC belt on the back of the crank pulley and route it as per the diagram under the hood.

    6. Now you need to tighten up the idler pully and the push bolt until the belt play is within factory specifications, then tighten the hub bolt in the center of the pulley as well.

    7. The same thing needs to be done for the serpentine belt as well. Just ensure that you tighten up the bolts and have the specified play in the belt. Check the belt tension by pushing inward on the belt.

    8. Crank the vehicle for about 15-20 seconds. Then turn it off and again check the tension in the belt. Adjust as necessary. You need to have about half an inch of play in the belt.

    If this doesn't work for you or in case you need any further assistance, please comment and let me know, and I will be happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

    I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating for this solution.
    Thank you.

    How do you change an idler pulley on a 97 mercury grand marquis


    Using either a serpentine belt tool or a long ratchet and a socket on the tensioner pulley bolt, turn the tensioner to relieve tension and pop the belt off. Remove the idler pulley bolt and replace the idler pulley. To finish it up simply reinstall the belt.

    Need to replace the idle pulley on a ford f250


    if it is a 7.3 or 6.0 turbo diesel it will have a duallie tensioner-pulley setup. use a half inch breaker bar or ratchet to grab a hold of the tensioner then turn it very firmly counter clockwise until you can remove the belt. after that use the corresponding size socket and ratchet to loosen the bolt that retains the idler pulley.

    1 have a 1992 pontiac grand prix, 3.4L and i need to change out the power steering pump. since the pump is on top of the engine, it should be simple. How do i take off the serpentine belt?


    There is a spring laded tensioner on the left (as you look at the belts) there should be a 9/16" boss that a wrench fits on, push or pull and it will release the tension to remove the belt.

    1996 buick regal fan belt slipped off


    The idler pulley is spring loaded. With the correct size socket and ratchet and a strong arm just pivot it away momentarily from the belt enough to pull the belt loose. You don't actually remove the pulley. Just like taking a dead mouse out of the old spring traps. If you are getting some pulley noise, you can replace the pulley only (one bolt)
    pour water on the pulley to see if noise changes, its an easy way to track down belt, pulley noises.
