SOURCE: I have 1999 chevy cavalier. My ABS light is oh.

Drive it. Then have the rear abs brake sensors checked because they seem to be the first to go in a system like that. Someone with a scan tool should be able to read out any trouble codes in the abs system

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 i replace my serpentine belt on my 1998 chevy cavalier 2.4

I have a 2.4 also. The secret is to use a ratcheting box wrench on the tensioner pulley. thread the belt onto all of the pulleys except the tensioner. Then slip the ratcheting box between the fender wall and the face of the pulley. (keep the belt on the engine side of the wrentch) then pull up on the tensioner as far as space will permit. wedge something under the tensioner to hold it where it is. ratchet back down on the wrench and pull up again. this should lift the tensioner up high enough to slip the belt into place.

Where is the tensioner pully located on a 97 chevy cavalier?

If it is a V6 the tensioner is located on the left side of engine when looking at it, between the crank pulley and the ac and alternator. If you look at the belt and follow it around you will see the tensioner which normally has the smallest pulley on it. There should also be a belt routing diagram on the fender or by radiator, this too shows the location of the tensioner.

How to change/remove an alternator belt on a 1998 chevy cavalier z24

There is a tensioner in the front of the motor. It looks like a pulley on an arm. The front of the tensioner has a square spot. You can get on that with a 3/4" or I think a 19mm wrench. Rotate the whole thing counter clockwise. This will release the tension on the belt. With your other hand, or an assistant slide the belt off of the alternator pulley. You can let the tensioner down now. Go easy because it will go further than it was before. You dont want to loose any skin off of your knuckles!

There should be a belt routing diagram under there somewhere. Run it around everything else then pull it up to the alternator pulley again. Again pull the tensioner up. Slip the belt onto the pulley and let go. Get a light and make sure that the belt is completely on all of the pulleys. It is possible to have it riding on the edge.

Start it up and check it out. Youre done!
