There is a tension arm with a pulley on it. This is called a tensioner. There is a shape on the arm for a 1/2" breaker bar or wrench to press the arm and allow slack.

There should be a diagram of the belt routing on a label under the hood.. Some people take digital pictures before they remove the old belt.

Every mechanic has preferences to the best way to do things. Just because you can move the tension arm does not mean it is the best pulley to end with. If you wrap the belt around the pulleys and save the last pulley with the easiest access, do that. Others would rather have a smooth last pulley to slide the belt over rather than a grooved pulley.

I need a belt diagram for a Mercury Grand Marquis 4.6L V8 engine 2006


SECTION 303-05: Accessory Drive 2006 Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Procedure revision date: 03/18/2008 Accessory Drive adobe.gif Printable View (104 KB) The accessory drive system:
  • has a single serpentine accessory drive belt with 6 ribs.
  • has an idler pulley.
  • has an automatic drive belt tensioner.
  • is not adjustable.
The accessory drive system provides power to operate components which power other systems. These could include components such as the generator, power steering pump and A/C compressor. Each of these components is equipped with a pulley which is driven by the accessory drive belt. The accessory drive belt is driven by the engine crankshaft pulley. One or more idler pulleys may be provided to facilitate belt routing and alignment. The automatic belt tensioner maintains correct belt tension and compensates for component wear and changes in system load. System load changes can be caused by the A/C compressor clutch engaging or disengaging, or demand changes on other systems powered by the accessory drive belt. To maintain correct operation of this system, it is critical that the correct length drive belt be installed. The pulleys must also be correctly aligned and kept clean.

Automatic tensioners are calibrated to provide the correct amount of tension to the belt for a given accessory drive system. Unless a spring or damping band within the tensioner assembly breaks, or some other mechanical part of the tensioner fails, there is no need to check the tensioner for correct tension.

My daughter has a 2004 Kia Optima with 82k miles. I don't believe the drive belt has ever been replaced. Is it overdue?


Are you talking about the accessory drive belt or the ignition timing belt?

In any event, if you're confident it is the original, then by all means replace it.

My point in asking about which belt has to do with difficulty of repair. You should be able to replace the accessory drive belt yourself, but you should consider having a mechanic do the ignition timing belt.

Good luck

Screeching noise coming from the drive belt is this common


When your drive belt becomes old and stretches so it is no longer tight enough the belt will make a loud squealing noise and will need to be replaced. While the drive belt is off during replacement, you or the mechanic replacing the belt will need to turn each pulley in the system that can be turned by hand to see if any of those are making a metallic noise also. If they make a metallic noise, they are worn out. It is common for a drive belt to wear out and cause this noise.

Inspection
Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.
Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the engine splash shield.
  3. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to release the drive belt tension.
  4. Remove the drive belt from the alternator.
  5. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner.
  6. Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive pulleys.
To install:
  1. Install the drive belt to the accessory drive pulley.
  2. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise.
  3. Install the drive belt to the alternator.
  4. Ensure the drive belt is properly aligned and seated into the grooves of the accessory drive pulleys.
  5. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner
  6. Install the engine splash shield.
  7. Lower the vehicle.

How do I change an alternator belt on a '99 hyundai accent?


Call your local National Guard Armory, Fire Station, State College auto program or High School Auto Shop and ask if they have somebody that would come put it on for you. Ask you pastor who the "auto guy" in the church is, if you don't have a church call the biggest church closest to you and ask the receptionist if they have an "auto guy" that would help you. The local senior center or VFW hall have "auto guys" . If you were within 50 miles of 83501 I'd come do it for you.


Removal & Installation Raise and support the vehicle.
    Remove the engine splash shield.
  1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to release the drive belt tension.
  2. Remove the drive belt from the alternator.
  3. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner.
  4. Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive pulleys.
To install:
  1. Install the drive belt to the accessory drive pulley.
  2. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise.
  3. Install the drive belt to the alternator.
  4. Ensure the drive belt is properly aligned and seated into the grooves of the accessory drive pulleys.
  5. Slowly release the drive belt tensioner
  6. Install the engine splash shield.
  7. Lower the vehicle.

It's O.K. to ask for some help.
