96 Geo Tracker Belt Removal Problem

I need to replace the serpentine belt on my 96 Geo Tracker. Got the new belt, was able to get the alternator loose, but can't seem to get the AC compressor loose in order to remove the power steering belt so I can get the new serpentine (alternator) belt on. Anyone know how to get that AC compressor to budge? I'd be able to have this belt on and good to go in 15 minutes if I could just get the compressor loose.

Thanks to anyone who can help! Trying to get this thing fixed by tomorrow.

    there is?...I wasn't sure that there was one on the tracker, since it has 2 belts...is it located center, front of engine? Is it the double pulley in the center? If so, how do I loosen the tension?

Replace the fan belt 2003 chevy tracker 2.0


Jerald, You will have to remove the the accessory belt first I believe by putting appropriate wrench on tensioner and pulling tensioner toward passenger side to allow removal of the belt. Then you will loosen alternator to let tension off fan belt and replace the fan belt. Reverse procedure to install. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

A/c compressor makes screeching noise in geo tracker 96


This is just a guess but the screeching might not be the compressor. You might need a new drive belt and make sure you put belt drive dressing if you replace it.

How do I loosen the A/C unit to replace belt


mcdevito75 here, If your car has a serpentine belt, very thick, long and 1 piece then you don"t loosen the A/C unit to replace the belt, you"ll need a wrench to move the tension pully to install thebelt. Let your local repair shop change the belt.

Need to install serpentine belt on 1992 geo storm.Is there a tension pulley and how do you loosen it to get new belt on?


Removal & Installation
  1. Except for the 1.8L engine, loosen the pivot and anchor bolts on 1 of the belt's components, then pivot the component sufficiently to release belt tension and remove belt.
  2. For the 1.8L engine, use a 3/8 in. breaker bar or ratchet to pivot the belt tensioner and release the serpentine drive belt, then remove the belt from the pulleys and the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the belt over the pulleys.
  2. For the 1.8L engine, pivot the tensioner and install the serpentine belt. Make sure the belt is properly aligned in all of the pulley grooves, then gently pivot the tensioner into contact with the belt. Do not allow the tensioner to snap into position or damage could occur.
  3. Except for the 1.8L engine, adjust the belt tension and tighten the accessory mounting bolts.

Change alternator belt on 1996 buick riviera


The 96 Riviera has a motor mount that interferes with the removal and replacement of the serpentine belt. The motor mount must be loosened and the engine need to be lifted slightly to accomplish the replacement. Not good engineering on this model year.
