SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.

SOURCE: replacing the serpentine belt

Theres not an easy way, i just had to do this on my ZX2. just put a 13mm socket on the tensioner pully, pull down on it to get it to release, remove belt, and then try to place the belt all around everything but the a/c compresser, then pull back down on the tensioner and wrap the belt around the a/c compresser since its right there on the bottom where you are pulling, so you can use one hand on the tensioner and the other to put the final loop around the compressor, if this doesn't work for you, try to wrap it all but around one of the other pulleys. Mine didn't have a diagram, heres one that i made in paintbrush to help you.

use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys

SOURCE: 2000 Windstar: how to replace serpentine belt...

this is not a dificult job but it can be alittle teadious. This is straight from the maintainance manual

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Because serpentine belts use a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than it used to be on engines where accessories were pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked'' all different ways through the pulleys) and to make sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys. The first places you should check for proper belt routing are the labels in your engine compartment. These should include a belt routing diagram which may reflect changes made during a production run.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety. This will help assure that no one mistakenly cranks the engine over with your hands between the pulleys, and that the cooling fan cannot activate while servicing the belt(s). NOTE: Take a good look at the installed belt and make a note of the routing. Before removing the belt, make sure the routing matches that of the belt routing label. If for some reason a diagram does not match (you may not have the original engine or it may have been modified), carefully note the changes on a piece of paper.
  2. For tensioners equipped with a 1⁄2 in. (13mm) square hole, insert the drive end of a large breaker bar into the hole. Use the breaker bar to pivot the tensioner away from the drive belt. For tensioners not equipped with this hole, use the proper-sized socket and breaker bar (or a large handled wrench) on the tensioner idler pulley center bolt to pivot the tensioner away from the belt. This will loosen the belt sufficiently that it can be pulled off of one or more of the pulleys. It is usually easiest to carefully pull the belt out from underneath the tensioner pulley itself.
  3. Once the belt is off one of the pulleys, gently pivot the tensioner back into position. DO NOT allow the tensioner to snap back, as this could damage the tensioner's internal parts.
  4. Now finish removing the belt from the other pulleys and remove it from the engine. To install:
  5. While referring to the proper routing diagram (which you identified earlier), begin to route the belt over the pulleys, leaving whichever pulley you first released it from for last.
  6. Once the belt is mostly in place, carefully pivot the tensioner and position the belt over the final pulley. As you begin to allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt, run your hand around the pulleys and make sure the belt is properly seated in the ribs. If not, release the tension and seat the belt.
  7. Once the belt is installed, take another look at all the pulleys to double check your installation.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable, then start and run the engine to check belt operation.
  9. Once the engine has reached normal operating temperature, turn the ignition OFF and check that the belt tensioner arrow is within the proper adjustment range.

What is the average life of a serpentine belt?

It varies from vehicle to vehicle but you could ask the dealer---my view has always been to keep an eye on the belt for cracks or fraying anywhere---they are not that hard to replace and while costs will vary (on mine found a OEM one new for 26 dollars and same belt at local parts place was 52---same brand and part number.

It is better to replace it and have the tension unit that tightens most of these inspected than have it go when you are driving down the road.

In my case I keep the old belt rolled up and stowed in the vehicle in case the new one fails.

My 2005 nissan frontier need 4000.00 worth of repairs relating to serpentine belt whining at start do u know what has to be replaced to cost that much

When did they start putting gold in a serpentine belt? The serpentine belt only cost about $40 dollars tops. Who told you $4000.00 for this? If it was a shop or a mechanic PLEASE finds a new shop or Mechanic. You could replace the whole front end for that amount of money. I recommend 2 things. 1. Find a different shop or mechanic for doing your repairs the one that told you this didn't give you the whole story as to what they think is wrong. 2. Get a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle model and year from Auto Zone or Advance Auto so you have a better idea of what the problem could be based on the symptoms you are seeing.

As another option, you could post a description of what was happening that made you take the vehicle to a shop to begin with and we could possibly narrow this down to a specific problem that could be fixed. Fact is for 4k I can replace an engine or rebuild one and pocket a lot of money. Even if you had to replace the Alternator ($200), Water Pump($140), AC Compressor ($400), Power Steering Pump ($200), Harmonic Balance Pulley ($50), and Tension Pulley($60), which is essentially everything that is pulley driven on the front of the engine you only come to $1040 in parts add another $1000 in labor and you still don't get to $4000. The serpentine belt itself only cost about $40 in most areas and depending on what has to be removed to replace it about an hour in labor so depending on where you live, to have a shop replace the Serpentine belt would cost about $140 max.

90,000 engine service what do u change

In a word...everything!

First and foremost replace the timing belt, all of the Galant engines are interference engines meaning that if it fails you will sustain severe damage to the engine. If your at 90K miles your over by about 20K. Since your going to be in there go ahead and replace the water pump.

Also needing replacing, Serpentine belt, Spark plugs, Spark plug wires, anti-freeze, Transaxle fluid, Air filter, Radiator hoses.

If you have a 4 cyl most you can do most of this yourself at very little cost. Don't try the Timing belt unless your an above average do it yourself mechanic.

If its a 6 cyl I'd just have a shop do it all at the same time, the plugs and wires are a pain.

I have a 1993 subaru legacy wagon and just had the belt(s) for the alt and a/c replaced and Midas says I should replace the "serpentine" belt now too for a cost of $700. Does the car have a serpentine...

Your car does have a serpentine belt, and it costs like $12.00 new. I had a friend of mine who was a mechanic, and he put mine in when it went bad for free. It didn't take him very long, so I'm not sure how that $700 estimate can be accurate. Even if you bought a belt at a store and paid $75/ hr labor at a garage it shouldn't over $100...It just doesn't take that long. You do need a specific tool for the belt tensioner, but Midas is trying to rip you off.
