If you take the belt off, can you wiggle the tensioner pulley? there's usually a bolt in the center of the pulley.... it should be tight... otherwise the bearing in the pulley might be bad. If so, you can remove the pulley by removing the bolt in the center, and get a cheap one at an auto parts store.

Power steering pulley or tensioner pulley?


Take the tension off the belt and then move each pulley by hand . If the tensioner pulley feels rough or makes a noise, replace it. Same goes for the power steering, although the pump may be noisy without the pulley feeling loose.

I need to know how to change the serpentine belt on a 1994 chevy cavalier


    • 1 Open the hood, and locate the auto-tensioning bolt in the center of the pulley system. This bolt will be in the center of a pulley that does not appear to be connected to any component.
    • 2 Turn the auto-tensioning bolt clockwise with a socket wrench to release tension on the belt.
    • 3 Slide the belt off the pulley system.
    • 4 Orient the new belt on the pulley system according to the belt path printed on the underside of the hood and next to the hood latch mechanism on your Cavalier. Leave slack in the belt around the tensioner pulley.
    • 5 Slide the belt over the tensioner pulley while you have the auto-tensioner pulley bolt turned clockwise as far as it will go. Make sure that the belt is sitting centered in all the various pulley grooves on the pulley system.
    • 6 Release the tension pulley bolt, and apply tension to the belt. The auto-tensioner will automatically apply the correct amount of tension on the belt.

How do you replace serpentine belt?


Hi,
This is a simple technical task,just ensure you follow the instructions below carefully;

STEP 1 Open the hood and locate the accessory belt diagram, which shows the routing of the belt in the engine.

STEP 2. Turn the tensioner pulley to the right by placing a 15-mm wrench on the bolt in the middle of the tensioner and rotating the entire pulley. The tensioner pulley is located in the middle of the power steering pump and the crankshaft, and across from the water pump.


STEP 3 Pull the belt off one of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner back into its original position.

NOTE;The tensioner pulley is spring loaded. If it snaps back into place, you stand the risk damaging the pulley.

STEP 4 Remove the old belt from the other pulleys and discard it.


STEP 5 Carefully Wrap the replacement serpentine belt around all but one of the pulleys using the belt diagram as a guide. Choose a pulley that is easy to access, i will suggest the power steering or tensioner pulley.

STEP 6 Hold the belt tight and rotate the tensioner pulley to the right.



STEP 7 Gently Slide the belt around the open pulley and move the tensioner pulley back into position.

FINAL STEP Ensure that the belt is properly wrapped around all of the pulleys. The belt sits in the middle of the groove of the pulley when properly installed.

Problem solved,good luck....

How do i change the drive belt on a 97 Mirage


To change the drive belt you will need to find the tensioner pulley justt loosen the bolt /nut in the center of the pulley and then wind the pulley slider down usually located on the back side of the pulley. wind it down until you can slip the belt off. if the is 2 belt say for instance power steering and ac etc remove the outer belt first the power steering pump may have the tensioner on it same concept though. loosen nut/bolt and unwind til the belt slip off the pulley. remember to disconnect your battery because its better safe than sorry. Good luck!

How do i change the belts on a 2004 kia sedona van


There is a tensioner pulley for each belt, you loosen the nut on the front of the pulley, then there is a tensioner bolt that you loosen, that will move the pulley away from belt to remove the belt. You'll need to get to them from the passenger side under the car. You'll need to remove the plastic covers to get them.
