You need to create a wedge on the pulley with a screw driver or something. The auto parts store has a part that can hold the pulley.

The other option is to drill out the bolt and replace with another bolt. This can get rough to the point you may have to re thread the bolt hole.

Good Luck

My idler pulley on my 96 ford explorer is grinding on the bracket that holds it in place and creating a loud grinding noise, what steps would I use to resolve it??


change the idler pulley . its held on by a bolt in the center of the pulley. the bearings are sealed so you can't grease them. but first you have to take the tension off the serpintine belt. that is also another pulley located below the idler.don't know what size bolt on a ford but use a long wrench grab the bolt on the tensioner push to the right like you were tightening it. that will release the tension on the belt. don't take the belt all the way off just off the idler pulley. change the pulley and do tha same to reinstall the serpintine belt. if the belt comes all thr way off under the hood or on the front around the top of the radiator there will be a schematic that shows you how the belt should go around everything. let me know what happens. sometimes the tensioner pulley will grind also so be sure your changing the right pulley

Replace idler pully on 92 Nissan. Pathfinder 4~4


Looks like there is an idler pulley for the ac belt. The alternator and ps belts are adjusted by moving the components.
The pulley is available without the bracket, so you should be able to loosen the center bolt without removing the bracket. There is an adjusting bolt or rod that you turn to tighten or loosen the belt once you have loosened the bolts for the bracket.

Serpintine belt was replace as was the idler arm. alternator is charging, and noise difference when ac is on or off. But noise is very loud when engine is running. When serpintine belt is off there is no...


With the belt off, try to spin each pulley that spins and see if there is any roughness or flat spots on the bearings that you can detect with your hands.

Usually, the bearings on Alternators or idler pulleys go bad before the a/c because the a/c should have oil in it. However, it could be any of the pulleys that the belt spins on.

It can be a process of elimination of changing parts until the sound goes away, if you can't detect it under free spinning conditions with the belt off.

Where is belt tensioner and how do you turn it to loosen belt to change


The belt tentioner pully is the idler pully in the serpentine belt system...
You need a long wrnch (11/16??) to fit the pullys center bolt...
Turn the bolt to the right ( righty tighty) and the tentioner will losten its tention on the belt enough to remove the belt...
Imediately replace the belt ... so its routing is not forgotten by time or distraction...
If there is still a sticker on the upper radiator support reflecting the serpintine belt routing.. then you are in a better spot to be doing this ... with distractions...

Need to know how to adjust serpentine belt, please show diagram. 6 cyl engine.


Really don't need a diagram. Loosen the slide bolts on the power steering pump. loosen or tighten the pump by turning the jack screw (long transverse bolt) under the pump. Once the belt is tightened up, lock down the slide bolts and you are finished.

Belt replacement 1990 acura integra


Ok, you will need a 10 mm socket and extension and a 14 and 15 mm wrench. One of the "idler" pullies is actualy an adjustable tension pully. loosen the center nut on the pully, and then begin loosening the 10 mm bolt from above. as you loosen it, the pully will drop, and soon enough you can slip the belt off.
good luck
