SOURCE: Timing Belt Tensioner bolt broken off.

if this happened you bent the valves in the engine and the cylinder head must be removed, here are full instructions for a timing belt replacement.

Required tools:
13mm open end wrench 10mm shallow and deep socket 8mm socket long flathead screwdriver 17mm deep socket T50 torx socket 1/4", 3/8ths and 1/2" ratchets and extensions E10 inverted torx sockets 6mm Allen wrench 15mm open end wrench 7mm socket 12mm open end wrench 14mm socket 12mm socket 8mm, 9mm and 10mm Allen head sockets 19mm socket pry bar needle nose pliers
If you are doing this because your timing belt broke you will also need to buy a complete cylinder head, head gasket set, and both idler pulleys. ALL DAEWOO MODELS WILL BREAK THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES WHEN THE TIMING BELT BREAKS.
Start by removing the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body, remove the air filter and housing jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel, remove the plastic shielding in front of the accessory drive belt assembly, remove the accessory drive belt, place a jack with a block of wood on top underneath the engine oil pan remove the front engine mount, remove the crank shaft pulley ( the 4 Allen head bolts only not the 17mm bolt in the center.) remove the metal plate behind the engine mount bracket on the engine, remove the plastic timing belt cover 3 clips on top 2 10mm bolts on bottom. Rotate the engine until the #1 cyl. is at Top Dead Center on the compression stroke or line up the crankshaft timing mark with the mark on the inner timing belt cover ( notch in cover with notch in pulley) on the camshaft pulleys -- ( intake cam line up the line on the pulley with the line on the inner cover)( exhaust cam line up the arrow on the pulley with the arrow on the inner cover) loosen the 13mm bolt in the belt tensioner and using the Allen wrench rotate the tab until there is slack in the belt. Remove the belt. At this time I would recommend you replace the water pump, both plastic idler pulleys as they tend to overheat and lockup, and the belt tensioner. Make sure all your marks are lined up, you may need a helper to hold the Exhaust Cam in place as it tends to move during belt installation. Put the timing belt underneath the crankshaft pulley, install the belt leaving the intake cam for last and NO BELT SLACK on the right side between the crank and the exhaust cam. Once the belt is installed rotate the crankshaft over 2 revolutions and make sure is rotates freely, and your timing marks are aligned perfectly if not the engine will not run properly, tension the belt as needed. Installation is the same as removal.

To clarify, on the DOHC engine, the intake cam gear has a line on it, and the exhaust cam gear has an arrow on it. These should be lined up with the corresponding line and arrow on the VALVE COVER, pointing straight up. I just went through this process over the weekend, and spent quite a bit of time looking for these marking as I had removed the valve cover. Once I found them, it was plain and simple.
In addition, be sure to not over tighten the belt when reinstalling. The tensioner has markings on it for "old" and "new". DO NOT adjust past "new", as the car will sound like a jet engine, and the belt will not last for very long.
One more item that you may as well replace while you are in there is the cam position sensor if you have not already, as there have been issues with them, and the timing housing has to be opened to get to it

SOURCE: Serpentine belt diagram for 2003 chevy cavalier 2.2l ohc

That pulley is the tensioner pulley. It is either manual or automatic. If it is a manual tensioner, the bracket that it is attached to it should have a square hole located on it bracket somewhere. This whole will look inoculous, but will be offset from the pulley. If you have a 3/4" socket wrench, you'll notice it fits nicely into this hole.

You use this hole (and the wrench) to twist the whole bracket and apply tension while you tighten the bracket itself down.

An automatic tensioner will have a spring inside and would pretty much work by itself when a belt of the proper length is installed. Your Hanynes manual would have already alerted you to how to adjust an automatic tensioner.

I hope that helps.

BTW, the tensioner pully usually rests on the back (flat) side of the belt and has no device attached to it.

You need the proper bar and tools to move the tensioner back. The spring that is in the tensioner can not be moved by a ratchet.

Trying to replace waterpump on a 96 suzuki swift but cant get the bottom pully off to remove the timing cover to get at the waterpump off. we cannot get a good angle to crack the nut. the frame is in the...


  1. Remove air filter to give you more room to play
  2. Loosen alternator and alternator tensioner. Alternator tensioner bolts to water pump so that bolt will need to come out.
  3. With the alternator loose, the main drive belt should be loose and be able to be removed, do this.
  4. Loosen the tensioner bolt for the air conditioner, on the underside of the engine. Losen the nut on the air conditioner tension wheel. The tensioner wheel should now slide up and down freely, allowing removal of the air conditioner belt.
  5. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts on the water pump pulley. Remove the water pump pulley.
  6. Remove the 4 x 10mm bolts on the camshaft pulley. This is the main pulley that all the belts connect to. There is a large 17mm bolt in the middle of this pulley that does not need to be removed. (Crankshaft Bolt).
  7. The camshaft pulley should slide off, however you will probably have no clearance (because of the crankshaft bolt) to remove the pulley. The pulley has to be removed.
  8. Place a jack under the sump, use a piece of wood to protect the sump. Jack the sump up 1/2 inch. Undo the two 14mm bolts in the engine mounts. When the two left hand engine mount bolts are out, lower the jack slowly until you can slide the camshaft pulley out.
  9. Remove the plastic timing belt cover.
  10. You should now see the timing belt, remove the timing belt tensioner pulley, being careful not to move the timing belt wheels.
  11. Undo the bolts holding the water pump.
  12. Water pump should come off, water will come out if you haven't drained it.
  13. Scrape off gasket.
  14. Install new water pump.
  15. Reassemble in reverse order.

View of mark for timing belt.


hi from uk the cambelt/timing belt comes as a kit ie timing belt and tensioner cost £50 here in uk ? it is not too difficult diy job approx 2hours the engine must 1st be set to TDC number 1 firing then at this setting the cam cog mark is a hole drilling in the web of cog and should line up at 12 oclock upwards and using a mirror look thro drill hole and you will see a vertical notch/groove behind on font engineface this is correct mark the crank cog mark lines up with aother mark on engine front face at approx 12 30 pm oclock ? if now set you slacken tensioner bolts and push t/pully away to left from belt ? then remove belt next remove complete tensioner assy after undoing bolts then fit new tensioner push t/pully to left from belt run and lock bolt/s recheck t/marks then fit new belt from c/shaft in anticlockwise rotation when fitted release tensioner bolt and allow to tension belt push t/pully onto belt and lock up tensioner bolts20=27 Nm rotate engine manually for four turns then recheck marks ? should still aligne then re assemble torque crank bolt to =140-150 Nm A LITTLE HINT ? b4 you remove the water pump belt ? slacken thefour 10 mm headed bolts (spanner size) that secure w/pump pully to pump it will be easier to halt rotation of pully if you holt belt tight by hand this pully has to come off to remove c/belt covers same for power steer belt which is also driven from the w/pump pully the power steer pump slide adjuster has a 12 mm bolt you slacken and best done with open end spanner ? after slackening the pump mounting bolts/nuts underneath pump hope you can follow this info/tips wish you good luck from uk

Hi, could you please tell how to remove the bottom cover on a 1.6 vw bora......which is covering the bottom pulley for a timing belt change..... does the tensioner need to come off.....? and if so how do...


the one on the engine ?? two bolts either side ,cant remember but yes you may have to remove the fan belt tensioner thinking about it ,quick tip ?? to undo the bottom crank pulley bolt ,use a knuckle bar on socket and jam the knuckle bar into suspension then crank with starter motor ,undoes them everytime it does.Then before you slacken anything to do with the timing ,bring it around to TDC no 1 and paint all the pulleys to the block with white paint ,except the water pump and idlers .

Changing belts in 1992 volkswagen passt


There will be a tensioner that needs slackening off before any belt can be removed. Find the tensioner for the belt in question and slacken it off. When you have fitted the new belt, tighten up the tensioner as recommended by VW or the Haynes Manual. I hope the other belt is not the timing belt. If the timing is not set right you are looking at a new cylinder head at the least.
