Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
My belt broke i need to replace it but can not adjust pulley can you suggest how to do this Same thing - We got the right belt as specified but it just really seems too small - there seem to be 3 different belts on this 2000 kia sportage - no serpentine - and it is strange that the old belt would fit where the adjuster pulley was set at but even when the adjuster is moved to the highest point we can't get it on! :(
You should seed a idler pulley..on the front you will see a nut that holds pulley on use a 10 mm rench the there's a 10 mm ajuster bolt lose this till belt fits left lose right tight.. after belt is tight then tighten nut in front of pulley.. if belt Sq weeks tighten some more..

Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.
For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.
I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.

Insert the square tip of a 1/2-inch socket wrench into the square hole in the center of the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley. The adjustment pulley is the smallest pulley the belt wraps around.
Pull the adjustment pulley toward the engine with the socket wrench to release the tension on the serpentine belt, then pull the belt off the air conditioning compressor's pulley.
Remove the bolts which secure the air conditioning compressor to its mounting brackets with an open-end wrench, then position the compressor to the side of the engine compartment. Do not disturb the hoses that attach to the compressor.
Pull the electrical connection off the crankshaft sensor.
Remove the two bolts that secure the crankshaft sensor against the engine with an open-end wrench, then slide the sensor out of the engine.
Slide the new crankshaft sensor into the engine, then install and tighten the sensor's two securing bolts with an open-end wrench.
Press the electrical connection onto the crankshaft sensor.
Position the air conditioning compressor against its mounting brackets, then install and tighten the compressor's bolts with an open-end wrench.
Pull the serpentine belt's adjustment pulley toward the engine with the socket wrench, then position the belt onto the air compressor's pulley.

Remove the alternator/power steering and water pump drive belt to gain access to the air conditioning belt.
Loosen the tensioner pulley locknut, then turn the adjusting screw to raise or lower the tensioner pulley assembly. Remove the belt.
Install the belt.
To adjust the belt, loosen the tensioner pulley nut and adjust the belt tension by tightening the adjusting screw. Tighten the pulley nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) after adjustment.
Install the alternator/power steering and water pump drive belt and adjust.
Start the engine and check for proper belt alignment and any abnormal noise.
