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?

Some Trackers(Sidekicks) have fuses in the AC wiring harness behind the glovebox. 1996's might be new enough to have the fuse actually in the the fusebox. How is the charge in the system?

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.

My 1994 Geo Tracker electrical system went out as I was driving. But the car continued to be driven all the way home. But the blinkers, wipers, and blower all slowed and almost stopped. Where should I...


Look at your charging system. Make sure your alternator belt is tight, about 1/2 inch of play in the belt. Then check the wires on the alternator and make sure none are loose. Check for broken wires from it as well. Make sure there are no loose or broken wires or cables at the battery. If everything checks out get the alternator tested for output. When they test it make sure everything is turned on to see how it performs under load. Hope this helps.

96 geo tracker will start on time and not the


You didn't indicate that the starter turns over slow--that would be a strong indication of a bad battery, but if so, check your battery. If your battery is more than three years old, replace it. If the battery is good and you still have problems it could be a starter problem.

Does the serpentine belt need somekind of lubricant?


Belt is getting hot, because it might be loose or one of the components (AC, water pump, alternator etc) has trouble with rotation (getting stuck). In most common case it is alternator.
If you are handy with that you need to remove the belt and rotate the alternator, water pump, ac pulleys and see which one has problem with rotation. Also you can check for free at Autozone if alternator giving enough charge.

Libricants are prohibited to use, belt will be slippering and wont rotate the pulleys for AC, water pump, alternator.

For tension serpentine belt can be checked by twisting it, it should not twist more then 90 degree, or by pushing, no more the 1/4 inch freedom then you push it
Good Luck
