Check tensioner & idler pulleys for poor rotation, also check all driven accessories for the same issue

Go to your local auto parts store and tell them what you need and they can give you a belt so you can bypass your ac pump.

SOURCE: how do I release the belt tension pully to replace serpentine belt

You can run down to your local auto parts store and buy a serp belt tool. Or you can take a 3/8 drive ratchet, locate the 3/8 square hole in your tensioner and put the ratchet in the hole. For more leverage I put a deep socket over the ratchet handle and put a long 3/8 extention in the deep socket. This will provide ample leverage and will save buying more tools you do not need. Simply move the tensioner to the direction that takes pressure off of the belt.

2001silverado/5.3 keeps shredding the front rib only,the 3rd belt,and a new tensioner did not fix the problem


I don't like Dayco, but that is not the issue
Most likely the crankshaft damper will have to be
replaced.
You can't see the misalignment but it is there
Don't know who they is-- but I want to know and get the
parts I want,so I assume you don't work on vehicles.

You have a worn out crank damper pulley that shifts the belt alignment or tracking or water pump going bad & pulley moving
in & out or other pulley or bracket issues.

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt...


is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

Jeep cherokee country tensioner pulley noise


May be a weak tensioner that needs replacing. Make sure you clean pulleys well with brake cleaner or similar as well. I have had one with similar problem, that Gator back belt was causing it. I'm not 100% convinced that a notched belt will get as good a grip as a complete rib all the way around the belt. Just doesn't add up to me. If you compare that to tire grip, then you'd be telling me that snow tires would work better on the Nascar circuit?

Replacing main belt on chevy truck 4.8 engine


remove the belt to ac compressor.take your serpentine belt go around crank pulley goes around power steering pump goes around alternator and the tensioner on the far left. the water pump on the out side and the top idler pulley out side. the belt drives them from the out side. then you put your ac compressor belt back on.

Replaced belt tensioner and now the belt is to long


Your complete post does not display. So, I can only assume the rest says your belt is to big or to small. No matter what the case may be you have routed the belt incorrectly on the pulleys. If the tensioner is the same then the belt could not change the length. Rember, the outside smooth side of the serpentine belt rides on the smooth pulley surface and the ribbed pulley rides on the ribbed side of the belt. Look on the radiator cowl or the bottom side of the hood and it should have a routing schematic for you to follow. If it is gone just follow the smooth or ribbed formula above. Good luck.
