You do not loosen anything. there is a belt tensioner that you put a wrench on and pull up to loosen the belt.

Need to replace belts on a 2004 chevy tracker. Not a serpentine belt. How does one losen tension on the belt tensioner?


It is either bolted in place or it has a spring that can be released with a belt tensioner tool you get at an auto parts store. You might can use a 1/2" brakeover bar.

Serpentine belt not not lining up with driveshaft pully. bottem pully


I am not familar with your particular vehicle so what I provide is general guidance. I am addressing this for a serpentine belt (not to be confused with a timing belt). If you removed any of the pulleys in replacing the belt check and make sure you put the pulley on correctly. It is not that difficult to reverse a pulley when putting it on. If you losened a pulley or tensioner then go back to those pulleys and make sure the pulley is lying flat against its mount. Take a look at which pulley is out of allignment compared to the others. The one pulley that is out of allignment is where your problem is. If you did not remove or losen any pulleys (only losened a tensioner) in pulling the belt just go ahead and put the belt back on and see what happens. If it was a timing belt you were talking about you would never just try putting it on as poping a serpentine belt is not a big deal but pop a timing belt can ruing your engine.

What are the steps in installing a serpentine alternator belt?


Open hood, losen alternator, down at the bottom on the battery side should be a pully, using a breaker bar pull this up which loosens the tension on the belt, might be a good idea to draw a diargram before removing the belt. Purchase a good belt at an auto parts store, they come in all prices.

Serpentine belt


you put the belt on by putting a rachet on the tensioner pully and it only goes one way and that will losen the belt so you can slide it on the last pully prolly best one for last is the alternator pully and after it is on you let go of the tensioner pull and it will tighten right up

Serpentine belt squeeling


To replace the sepentine belt: Get a 9/16 socket with a extension. Look under the car and look for the oil filter. Next to the oil filter you will see a bolt. Use the sock and losen the bolt. This will losen the tensioner. You will notice the bolt coming out, push the bolt up and the tensioner will allow you to remove the belt.

Remove and replace belts


Losen the top and bottom bolts on the alternator and tilt or rotate the alternator up (top goes backwards) to losen the top serpentine belt. Once there is slack, remove the belt (don't forget to take note of the routing of the original belt.
