SOURCE: toyota 2001 ipsum 2400litre horn doesnt work how

Check first the FUSE! Check the relay!
Then let somebody push the horn pad in the steering wheel, while u listen at the RELAY, if you hear any "click" sound that means relay is working! If the relay is working NOW the problem lies in the HORN itself and needs to be replace! Check the wiring too! There might a disconnected wire or a FAULTY ground to the HORN! Taah!

How to replace the tention idler pulley

using a breaker bar or some other tool w/ 1/2'' drive, insert into idler, there is a square hole, remove belt tension, donot remove belt, but lift belt off say the alternator, it would help if you hang the belt w/ wire or something so as not to let it drop. using a 15mm wrench, remove mounting bolt to idler, remove idler. better to replace the entire ilder w/ pulley, as an assymbly, they wear out like any thing else. when istalling new idler, must be positioned correctly. theres a finger which protrudes out of idler, this must be inserted @ engine sideof idler. reinstall bolt, tighten, reposition belt, using breaker bar 1/2" drive again, remove belt tension, so you can get belt over alternator pulley, release tension , done ! make sure belt is centered, and on properly according to belt rounting. when satisfied w/installation , start engine, check your work, remember to visulize existing idler, etc., etc., before you start this so you can put on the new one on exactly the way the old one was !!!!!!!!!!1

How do you change a 07 toyota tundra serentine belt

Insert a ratchet or breaker-bar drive (end of bar) into the square hole in the tensioner / idler pulley mount. Move the tensioner mount in whatever direction is required to release tension on the belt. You will then be able to remove the belt. Install new belt similarly -- there should be a routing diagram under the hood for the belt -- if not, it would be a good idea to diagram it yourself before you remove the old one.

Timing belt instalation points

Pretty simple fix... just did mine today. Before you start, do 2 things. 1. Remove the negative battery terminal for safety. 2. Make sure that you have a diagram available for the proper belt routing for your engine. If not, draw it up on a piece of paper.

Use a wrench or rachet / socket to rotate the tensioner pulley clockwise until you can slip the old belt off. Snake the old belt around the fan and discard it.

Check all pulleys for embedded gunk and clean as necessary. While not absolutely necessary, I recommend changing both the idler and tensioner pulleys- especially if you're changing the belt due to chirping or sqeaking. Autozone has the belt, tensioner pulley assembly and idler pulley for ~$110.

If changing the pulleys, just remove the single bolt that retains each pulley and replace the old ones w/ new.

Reverse the procedure for belt removal when installing the new one. Be very mindful of the routing and make sure that the belt is seated completely in the correct grooves of each pulley.

Put the negative battery cable back on and bump the starter a few times to be sure that the belt is tracking properly. Start it up and take pride in a job well done. Took me approximately 1 hour including pulley cleaning.

Good luck- by the way, my local Ford dealer wanted $360 to do this job.

Changing a serpatine belt on s40 volvo

Use a rachet to relieve the tension on the idler wheel, remove old belt, install new belt using the guide, either under the hood, or from the manual. Again use the idler tension relief to finish. when the rachet is on the idler wheel it is usually used to lift wheel off belt, to relieve tension.

Changing fan belt

Removal & Installation
  1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the drive belt.

    WARNING Never suddenly let go of the tensioned idler pulley. The force of the spring pressure suddenly released may damage the idler pulley mechanism. Always release the spring pressure gradually.

Rotate the belt tensioner to relieve tension on the belt—4.6L engine shown, others similar

To install:
  1. Route the belt over the pulleys making sure all the grooves in the pulleys and the belt line up correctly. Refer to the accessory belt routing section of this manual.
  2. Rotate belt tensioner clockwise and slip drive belt over idler pulley on tensioner.

I need to replace a fan belt on a 1965 corvair, how do i it?

If I read the question correctly the man has a Corvair, and yes that has a fan belt. Air coolled rear engine chevrolet. There is an adjustable idler opposite alternator side that needs loosened (9/16 socket ir wrench) and moved toward the block, then new belt installed around all pullys (4) top fan, lower crank pully, alt, and idler. Then readjust idler until correct tension. Caution use only the best of best belts. Corvairs are funny and will throw, twist, or chew up cheap belts. Happy motoring!

1996 Grand AM 3.1L serpentine belt replacement

Try this procedure.

To replace a worn belt, locate the idler or generator pulley.


Loosen the hold-down fastener for the idler or generator pulley.


Pry the idler or generator pulley inward to release the belt tension and remove the belt.


Match the old belt up for size with the new replacement belt.


Observe the belt routing diagram in the engine compartment.


Install the new belt over each of the drive pulleys. Often the manufacturer recommends a sequence for feeding the belt around the pulleys.

Pry out the idler or generator pulley to put tension on the belt.
Pry out the idler or generator pulley to put tension on the belt.


Install the belt squarely in the grooves of each pulley.


Before adjusting belt tension, check for proper pulley alignment. This is especially critical with serpentine belts. Measure the belt deflection in its longest span. If a belt tension gauge is available, use it and compare the tension to specifications.
If a belt is too tight, wear to bearings for the water pump, alternator, and engine crankshaft can result.
Some late-model Chrysler engines require a torque reading to be taken when tension is applied to the generator drive belt. This is especially important on the longer, multiribbed V-belts.


Pry the idler or generator pulley to adjust the belt to specifications.


Tighten the idler or generator pulley fastener.


Start the engine and check the belt for proper operation.

Any more questions please ask. Good luck.
