When you stand in front of the car look to the left on the frame under the hood that runs in front of the radiator and there should be a sticker showing the belt routing. If there isn't for some reason, then you need to buy a haynes or chilton manual from an auto parts store for about $20 or go to a dealer and they should be able to print a copy of the diagram since this diagram is not provided for free online. The haynes or chilton manual is a great investment, if you intend on working on your car more in the future and I recommend getting it, but you should find a sticker under the hood with the diagram on it. Let me know if you have any further questions.

    I can tell you that there is a tensioner spring keeping the belt tight near the oil pump,
    push down on this from the front using a pipe or stick etc, then pull
    belt off altenator. That is as good as I can do, no diagram. Be careful and check how the belt is routed before taking the old one off. Should be fairly simple to figure out the routing otherwise (backside of the belt goes on the smooth pulleys, grooved side goes on grooved pulleys.

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    How do I install the serpentine belt on a 2003 Ford expedition?


    Hello,Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine.The tensioner is what keeps tension on the belt and keeps the belt from coming off.The tensioner will have a bolt head in the middle of it that a 15mm socket will fit
    STEP 2:Look on the hood base where the hood lock attaches to the base and see if there is a belt diagram.This diagram will give you the exact instruction for properly routing the belt across the pulleys.If there is no diagram there,you will need to write down the exact routing of the belt on the pulleys on a notepad
    STEP 3:Put the 15mm socket onto the ratchet and put the ratchet onto the bolt head on the belt tensioner.
    STEP 4:Turn the tensioner clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt and remove the belt from all of the pulleys
    STEPS 5:Remove the new serpentine belt the same way that the old one came off by following the belt routing diagram instruction.Do not put the belt across the tensioner until last.Keep in mind that the belt will only go on one way and be right.
    STEP 6:Put the ratchet with the 15mm socket back on the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner clockwise to give you enough room to slide the new belt across the belt tensioner pulley.Slide the belt onto the belt tensioner pulley and release the belt tensioner.Look over the belt and double check to make sure that the belt is running across all of the
    pulleys correctly
    STEP 7:Crank the car and inspect that the belt is secure and is staying in the grooves on all of the pulleys.

    Thanks

    How about advise on a 2003 chevy silverado 2500 hd "alternator / drive belt replacement"


    The instructions are below. Also, there will be a diagram for the routing.
    1. Before you begin, visually confirm the belt routing to the engine compartment label (if present) or to the appropriate diagram in this section (if the label is not present). If you cannot make a match (perhaps it is not the original motor for this vehicle), scribble your own diagram before proceeding.
    2. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.
    3. Install the appropriate sized breaker bar, wrench, or socket to the tensioner arm or pulley, as applicable.
    4. Rotate the tensioner to the left (counterclockwise) and slip the belt from the tensioner pulley.
    5. Once the belt is free from the tensioner, CAREFULLY rotate the tensioner back into position. DO NOT allow the tensioner to suddenly snap into place or damage could occur to the assembly.
    6. Slip the belt from the remaining pulleys (this can get difficult is there is little room between the radiator/fan assembly and the accessory pulleys. Work slowly and be patient.
    7. Once the belt is free, remove it from the engine compartment.
    To install:
    1. Route the belt over all the pulleys except the water pump and/or the tensioner. Refer to the routing illustration that you identified as a match before beginning.
    2. Rotate the tensioner pulley to the left (counterclockwise) and hold it while you finish slipping the belt into position. Slowly allow the tensioner into contact with the belt.
    3. Check to see if the correct V-groove tracking is around each pulley.

    Installation of new serpentine belt on 2002 Chevy Cavalier


    Use a 3/8" socket end to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise. It may seem stiff, but that's a good thing... you want the tension to be there. After it's off the tensioner the belt will pretty much just come out of place and off the other pulleys. ***make sure you orientate the belt as it was originally (ac or w/ ac)...diagram should be on the front shroud.

    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.

    there will be a diagram of the routing of the belt on the bottom side of the hood. You need to specify what engine you have also. One common thing is the tension pulley, you will need to pry on it to relieve tension in order to put the belt on. Make sure you save the alternator for last as you can get to it a lot easier that the rest.
