1998 malibu shreding belts


Before installing a new belt spin all pulleys by hand. They should spin amoothly and freely. Check alternator, idler, tensioner, power steering and A/C. If any are hard, rough, or seized replace. Check that the belt aligns correctly with all pulleys and remove any debris embedded in the grooves.

How do i take my water pump belt off my 2000 cadillac seville sts?


There is an idler pulley that is spring loaded, it has a 1/2 square cutout that you insert a 1/2' drive rachet into and push it away from the center of the engine to remove enough tension from the belt to remove it. To install there is a diagram under the hood showing you how to re-thread the new belt.

How to loosen the idler pulley?


Generally you need a large enough breaker bar to force the pulley to move. It takes more than a socket or standard wrench. One way will loosen the nut. That is the wrong direction. Enough leverage and the pulley will move and the tension is relieved.

How do replace the tensioner pulley on a 2.2 engine 4 cyl. 1998 chevy cavelier .


there are two bolts located behind the pully on the mounting bracket arm, (you have to use a 1/2 inch drive bar in the idler pully to move it so you can see the bolts) That will help you with locating the bolts, while you are moving the pully you might as well take the belt off to save time, After you remove the old idler pully install the new one, use your 1/2 drive bar on the pully to put your belt back on. Pretty simple job, good luck!

How do you relace an alternator belt on 1998 chevy tracker?


A year is not a good sign. The belt should not have come off in that span of time. I would make sure you do not have a worn out idler or tensioner pulley bearing before installing your new belt or reinstalling the original if it is not worn or damaged.

You will find one or two small pulleys involved with drive belt. One of the smaller pulleys will be an "idler" pulley and simply redirects the belt to a different accessory. The other small pulley is considered a "tensioner" pulley, it is spring loaded and keeps the correct tension on the accessory belt.
The tensioner pulley will have a "squared" hole in the bracket or a bolt through the center of the pulley. In either case you will use a wrench to pry the tensioner pulley arm in the direction that loosens the belt. Once tension is relieved, pull the belt off a pulley and remove the belt. You will reverse the process to install the new belt.
Good luck and let me know.
Regards,

1998 Saturn SL idler pulley broke off and bolt is stuck in engine


The idler pully can be removed without removing the engine. I have replaced mine in my 97 SL2. As to the bolt breaking off, that is strange. I assume that if the bolt broke off, then the idler pully also fell off. If I remember, the space is somewhat limited, so getting a removal tool in there could be very difficult, especially if the bolt is flush with the mounting hole. That doesn't sound like a fun project. If bolt protrudes, maybe you can get some vise-grips on it and turn it out.
